As we’re off soon, we’re revisiting some of our favourite haunts and the walk behind the site is one of them. It’s one of those walks where you get a bit of everything – marshland, lochs, heather in bloom, mountain ranges in the distance, river views, donkeys and pigs!
Again, we were blessed with the weather as lately we’ve had gale force winds (again!) for days at a time, but today it was glorious. A beautiful sunny and warm day but with enough of a breeze to keep those pesky midges away!
As we got half way round you’re supposed to cross a little stream by means of a bridge, but a herd of cows decided they wanted it for the day…so we both ended up getting our feet wet (alright, I (Angela) got my feet wet!) and crossed the stream without the aid of the bridge!
Normally the walk should only take about three hours but we spent so long looking at the views, and subsequently waving goodbye for now it took us nearly four hours to get back. We timed it perfectly though, as we had just walked back on site when our friends Hazel and Allan (who we met when we helped out at Hereford) turned up. They were here for a couple of days before venturing off to Skye, so we went for a drink and a catch up in the evening.
It was great to see them and we think they enjoyed themselves as they went off exploring all day!
