Week #8 Glencorse

Glencorse is a privately owned estate just south of Edinburgh. The old Kirk has been restored and is now used for weddings. It is lovely as it has not been over restored and is now lit largely by candlelight.

The rest of the estate is so pretty-a lovely trout pond which was partly frozen, rolling farmland, and gorgeous horses.

52 Walks Week #7 Killin

On Saturday we went for an outing to Killin, near the Trossachs. As you can see, it's a very picturesque part of Scotland.
The hills were particularly lovely with that crown of snow on top.

Week #6

This week's walk was at the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.
The weather was dreich-love that word-dreich-drizzly and miserable, so a walk around the glasshouses-especially the hot houses-seemed a good idea. And it was!
