Today was the start of our (nearly) two days off so when we finished at 3pm we took a ride out to Cove again. We’d forgotten how beautiful the ride out was along the coast of the Loch and were then treated to a farmer rounding up some of his wayward sheep.
They were kind enough to let us watch them collect newborn lambs and their mum, and then they had two stubborn sheep who took it upon themselves to try and climb the rocks to escape. We’re not sure what the outcome was as when we left the young lad had adopted the role of the sheep dog and climbed the rocks to head them off.
The farmer quipped that he also had mountain goats and he may well be right!
After watching the farmer’s antics we walked up to the Russian Convoy Memorial stone again. It looked magnificent with the sun shining on it.
As it was clearer this time we could see a lot more of the surrounding mountains, they stood out a lot more as the snow has almost melted from them.
The coastline near Cove looked lovely also.
