Highland Waterfalls

The first day of our holiday in Pitlochry we went on a steep woodland walk (and yes Crafty Green Boyfriend had to drag me up some of the slopes) and discovered Black Spout which is a wonderfully beautiful 150 foot high waterfall on the Edradour burn (see photo above).

Later in the week we walked through the Hermitage in the Forest of Tay - another area with some lovely waterfalls (see photo below).

Tomorrow I hope to share some of our insect photos, but we've just discovered that National Insect Week is coming up soon in the UK and they're holding an Insect photography competition so I may not be able to share as many as I'd like! You can find out more about the competition here.

Oh, I love the Highlands and your photos of your holiday. I'm not so keen on heights, but I can see that it would be worth it.

Beautiful, can't wait the insects. Is there a pic of CGBF dragging you up a hill?

Your photos remind me of why I really need to plan a hiking trip or two this summer. (And I love areas with waterfalls, rivers, streams...)

Lovely waterfalls and Scotland go together, don't they Juliet. I particularly love the mare's tail waterfall which is much lower down the country than the highlands.
I shall miss your horse chestnut flower header - it was so beautiful.

Have never been to Scotland, so thanks ever so much for sharing the photos and information here. Seems like "mind travel" can be quite intriguing ... even when distances are great! Thanks, too, for your visits to Sunny Room Studio, always a pleasure to read your comments! Have a lovely day. --Daisy

Seeing those places would be worth the hike for me. Did you wade in the water?
