Strath Conon - the end of the road on Thursday. I didn't take my big camera; these were taken on my snapshot camera instead:

From here it's Shank's Pony all the way:

Still plenty of snow in the Highlands. This is Sgur Fuarr Thuill:

What happens when you are wanting to get home? They close the glen for half an hour whilst they cut the tree branches away from the electric lines!

Living in the north of Scotland occasionally has its advantages :)

Compo..i admire you and all the years of great Scottish photographs...there is breathtaking scenery here...but don't get to see it..for one reason & another.

Only when i fish on the odd occasion do i 'sit and listen to peace'. I enjoy the space though..Black Sabbath or a bonfire goes unchallenged.

Beekay: The nearest chip shop where you can get a fish & chips takeaway at under £8.50 is in England! By and large, Scottish chip shops are robbing b'stards.

presumably the sign there says "queues likely"?

Can't help but notice the same picture is doubled with a quote and nobody says a word. But when I did it with Nonna's granddaughter, I was criticised, and it removed. Just saying.

Brilliant PIC though Compo. I thought I had problems with an 18 mile round trip for a bag o chips!

A walk from Wick to Noss Head lighthouse on sunday produced this Great Skua. Great skuas are piratical birds that steal their food from other birds in flight.  Luckily, I had my Canon camera with me.......

I know it's not you Paul. I quite look forward to seeing your views. Often thought I might reciprocate with beautiful views in East Sussex, but held back because they're not Nottingham related.

Great Skua PIC ! I'm beginning to think you've got 'em all stuffed and stuck on poles.  thumbsup

There's plenty of Poles up here Beekay but not the type you mean :biggrin: Only joking.  I woud love to see some Sussex views and I'm sure others would too.  I started this thread some time ago to give a bit of a broader view of things instead of everything being totally Notts based. I'm sure others would also welcome your home area pictures.

I have just caught up with all of the photos and they are stunning. Living in a built up area on the outskirts of a small city, it is hard to imagine what life must be like living in such beautiful surroundings. I don't know if it would be too remote for me, even though I do enjoy being on my own, I certainly would like to spend some time up there. Wonderful Photos, Thank you Compo and others for sharing with us.:)

Just because the spuds are called Maris Piper doesn’t make them Scottish. Then there’s the fine English  cod. It costs a fortune to send proper food to the barren north. Let them eat porridge - that’s probably made in England as well!:biggrin:

You can't beat Cod and Chips open (Not to go!) with salt and vinegar.
