Cairngorms in Autumn

Image
We've been down to the Cairngorms and had a wonderful week with all the autumn colours. Here is a selection of some of the photographs I took.

Munsary Peatlands

Munsary Cottage Watercolour 16 x 26 cm This is one of the more remote places in Caithness. It is a large area of blanket bog, owned and managed by the conservation charity Plantlife. Apart from a small farm, there is no human habitation for miles and there is complete peace and quiet. The only sounds are the birds and the wind, and an occasional dragonfly as it flies by. The cottage was built originally as a shooting lodge, but it's used now as a field studies centre.
