A little bit of Scotland

Although I have now been in the North-East of Scotland for well over two years, I am still on a journey of discovery. Today a friend took us to see some fishing villages on the coast between Elgin and Fraserburgh. This stretch of coastline includes the location for the 1980s movie Local Hero, Pennan. But the place I found most wonderful of all was the the tiny village of Crovie – a gem that has been left largely untouched by modern development, although what were once fishermen’s cottages are now largely holiday homes, though beautifully maintained.

For readers of this blog who do not know Scotland’s North-East, it is well worth a visit.

    Lovely, really pretty. An ND filter and a tripod ?.

    A lot of little places like that had huge bumps in population when the herring was running. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silver-Darlings-Neil-M-Gunn/dp/0571090419

    For a change, I have a few photographs of Aberdeenshire villages and towns when they were all heavily snowed under for days and electricity was cut off in those days!!

    A few years ago, heavy snow in Banchory and Huntly in Aberdeenshire incarcerated two of my friends and their families for days in their homes and induced concern about their food running out; both families gave up the Scotland’s sceneries and emigrated to sunny Perth in Australia!

    Apologies. Banchory is in Kincardineshire. It was the snow and their struggle for days I vividly remember, and not the name of these shires!
