I’ve been away for a few days to the Highlands, but I’m back now, re-united with the knitting-machine. More on the knitting machine in the next post, for now just a few holiday snaps 🙂
We were really lucky with the weather.
This holiday had kind of a bridge theme. It all started with crossing this one…
from which we could see this one…
We stopped in Smeaton’s Bridge, opened in 1771!)and walked across this one (
After checking into our accommodation in Grantown, we took a drive to Carrbridge, which has this old pack-horse bridge.
Since we stayed in Grantown-on-Spey, we explored the area around it with a little walk and found another rather old bridge in the aptly named “Speybridge” close by. It’s closed for traffic, but open for walkers and the views are lovely.
After a walk around Loch an Eilein we also found a fantastic tea-room: The cakes were to die for, but the best thing was their bird watching window overlooking the vast, wild glen and the bird feeders right in front of it. It’s not the sort of place you get to by public transport, but if you are walking in that area, or have a car, don’t miss it!
Apart from a flying visit to Elena Costella’s Yarn and Fibre Studio in Perth, not much yarny action has been had on this holiday (apart from nearly finishing my Agnes sweater). This yarn will be turned into something on the knitting machine (my latest obession – you’ll hear all about it!)
