We just had a week up in Speyside, Scotland. Home now, with good memories plus thousands of photos to sort through. I'm going to do several posts about it, beginning with a bit about where we stayed.
Our cottage, South Dell, is one of five (I think) in the Dell of Abernethy, down a lane that starts in Nethy Bridge village and ends on the doorstep of Abernethy Forest. Unsurprisingly, there was lots to see in the grounds, and I spent a fair bit of time pointing the camera out of the kitchen window.
Besides everything shown/mentioned above, the garden was also visited by Jackdaws, Pied Wagtails and overflying Swallows and Oystercatchers. All in all, a perfect base for the wildlife nutter - and Abernethy Forest is two mins' walk away. If you fancy a stay at Dell of Abernethy, the cottages' website is here.
