Roslin Glen (2)

The River North Esk runs through Roslin Glen. The photo above shows the weir on the river that was used to provide power to the old gunpowder mill that used to operate on the banks of the river. In the background is one of the several pedestrian bridges over the river. Below is a photo of another of them. It was at this bridge that Crafty Green Boyfriend saw a kingfisher, though I didn't, I was probably watching a butterfly at the time, as there were a lot of orange tip butterflies around.
Away from the river, by Rosslyn Chapel, there is this wonderful bridge, surrounded by trees. The first photo is taken from the bridge and the second from below!

This is such a lovely area to walk. We have kingfishers her too - the belted kingfisher. In my experience, they are often shy of humans.

Lovely images of what was obviously a lovely walk.

Beautiful walk; I backed up and read both posts in sequence. Loved going along. Lucky BF to see the kingfisher -- I love those birds! That tunnelly looking shot at the end of this post is lovely (as are all your pix but this one is my special favorite).

Wow, it's beautiful. I've been wanting to tour a powder mill for many years, but can't seem to make it happen :-)

Looks like a glorious place for a stroll.

We had such insufferably hot weather this week and then today was cooler and low humidity... these pictures remind me of that cool feeling. Beam me there please....
