Spring in Scotland

Friday, April 16, 2010

This afternoon I took advantage of the warm, sunny weather and cycled into the countryside to obtain some images of young lambs, a couple of which are posted here. These animals are very cute frolicking in the sunshine.

Continuing the horticultural theme of last two days I have also posted images of daffodils from nearby Greenbank Garden.

This is Narcissus Comet

This is Narcissus Syn California

With Spring firmly entrenched and summer on its way I am busy with new tours and tour enquiries from all around the world. Today, I have finalised a small group, 3 day tour of the Scottish Highlands and am well advanced with a short two day tour for an Australian family. Late this evening, received an enquiry for a self-drive tour. Nice to be busy! Just hope the Iceland volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, calms down ( or the winds change) in time for the summer period, otherwise there will be a massive fall off in inbound tourism this year.

Hi Nigel !

I've just read on your site that Highlands and Islands have lost nearly 100,000 sheep annually for 5 years (total flock 8 million)... how many people whose ancestors have been cleared off their native land will return there,I wonder... What I wonder too, as I am passionate about traditional knitting, is whether there is also a decline in wool trade in Scotland ? There are so beautiful yarns there !

Bonne journée !
