A walk in the woods…..

Practically on my doorstep lies a 10 000 acre estate that can trace it’s heritage back to Robert the Bruce and before today I’d barely set foot in it.

With Covid restrictions still tight in Scotland and a sunny day beckoning me outside, I suggested to Boy Child that we take a walk through the estate instead of our usual quick lunchtime walk. We had planned on it being a short meander but we were soon led astray by the lure of country trails and woodland.

Having left the car at the marina (yes, I know I could have walked from the house but this was initially meant to be a quick walk!) we entered the estate.

then the lure of the woodland paths proved to be too strong….

these are actually alpacas not sheep…honest!

The sounds of nature and the peacefulness of the woodland were just what my soul needed today.

My Converse on the other hand may beg to differ (They have since been flung in the washing machine!)

and to round it all off beautifully, as we walked out of the estate and back to the car, I spotted a butterfly. My first butterfly photo of the year.

Happy days….
