...the Highlands of Scotland are littered with the memories of the Highland Clearances and the abandoned crofts of generations long gone. Thrown out of their homes to make way for sheep, they emigrated to Canada, America and Australia, New Zealand and found new homes in the New World. The Scots are to be found almost anywhere around the world, and still talk of the Old Country that many of them have never seen...

Yes Dougie, a bit of a stain on our fine Scottish heritage was these Highland clearances.
It did not effect my early family generation though.
I was told they all went to Australia on a free cruise ship !!
A splendid shot.

Lovely shot Dougie. There are some nice S curves leading the eye through the image here.

Now Dougie I was just trying to think how to word what I wanted to say and Derek has said it for me Grin. I really like that lead, and a wonderful view it takes the eye to as well. Moira

So interesting to learn things about places and see too an image of what is being told. I've always heard Scotland is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It seems so.

A good one Dougie showing us what we are missing and never likely to see.

A quiet beauty, in a place with such a shameful history.

A great composition Dougie with the shape of the headland echoing the shapes of the ruins. I also like the way this image looks towards the distant islands and the ocean beyond. Very beautiful.

They were terrible times, but they do make a fine image today. My eye is travelling around the horizon at those distant hills and wondering where they are.

Looking at this pictuer I can fully understand the Scots longing for their ancestral homeland, even if they have never been there. Is there a more beautiful place on earth? I think Scotland is God's masterpiece.
Absolutely beautiful image, old and new, blue and green, earth and water, heavenly skies.
