...another from my Farr trip. The old house sits in a quiet part of Scotland known as the Flow Country. Hardly a living soul for miles.
Having a wee breather, back soon.

A great place for photography Dougie but I wouldn't like to live there. A scintillatin g image Dougie and althogh that cottage is so minimal in the landscape it is such an intergral part of the scene. Enjoy your wee break

Utter peace and quiet up there then, Dougie, and a place to recharge one's spent urban batteries?
The cottage and outhouse/pen with it's red roof stand like a beacon in splendid isolation and look to be almost touching the clouds.
Enjoy your wee breather.

It seems to be nestling comfortably, like a duck spreading out its feathers and settling down into its nest.

Some nicely worn tracks leading up to the cottage. Very isolated, but must be so peaceful. Moira

Looks like the perfect place for mental therapy, Dougie. Only Nature as a distraction.
Enjoy the break - come back soon, my friend.

A beautiful photograph Dougie which also conveys a feeling of remoteness.
