Occasional Ramblings with a Camera

This blog is my occasional ramblings on here, there and about, with and very occasionally without a camera. Photography, art, landscape (principally Scottish), heritage and wildlife are the things that interest me the most, so thats what I'll be writing about and of course showing pictures of. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, well I'm not so sure about that but if it is then great as it will save me a heap of typing, all power to the image.

Gleann Beag / Glenshee - zoomable panorama

Following a walk last week along Glen Taitneach and then over behind Ben Gulabin to principally view a nice fold and shieling area, I later came around to this view of Gleann Beag, looking towards the hills with the Cairnwell and Glas Maol. It was a very hot and slightly hazy day so the distant clarity was not ideal but still ok. It's a grand viewpoint, showing the hills and also the archaeology on the slopes down to the river on its eastern (right hand) side. Below Creag Deargh there are also old field cultivation and just at its foot a very nice four poster stone 'circle', with one main stone still in situ. 
Can you spot the herd of Red Deer, mostly stags.

The inset image is of a lovely plant called Grass-of-Parnassus a great swath of which was nearby.
