The little hamlet of Duirnish, the Highlands by Neil Alexander

Further to my previous post on the Highlands of Scotland, I thought I'd post a few more photographs. The little hamlet of Duirnish (about which there is little I can gleam from t'internet) really caught my eye, primarily because on rounding a bend on the road between the A87 and the delightful seaside town of Plockton I had to anchor up hard to avoid half a dozen highland cattle asleep in the middle of the road. I waited patiently, then honked, then honked some more. They didn't even bat an eyelid. A local came the other way in a large 4x4 and quite literally gentled nudged them out of the way with her car. Clearly a common occurrence, though it did make me chuckle. When I finally made it through I discovered this wonderful little collection of cottages with cattle quite happily grazing away in the front gardens of the cottages! It had to be worth a few frames!

That's all for today. Hope you're all having a great week. Me? I'm on a beach somewhere :-)
