Taken this evening, and too good not to share.
Out for a walk this afternoon in sunshine and showers. These sycamores alongside the widening Kilmartin River are bursting leaf.
Dunchraigaig is on the road into Lochgilphead and I has to stop to take a few pictures in the spring sunshine before I went on to do my shopping. The cairn is 30m in diameter but has been heavily robbed for stone. This is a view from the north with the sun behind the trees on the right.
Although it’s mid-May, you’ll note that the leaves are only just starting to burst on the trees – these are sycamores.
This view is from the hill behind the village of Kilmartin, and shows the extent of the glen all the way to the Add estuary and looking into North Knapdale.
The footplate of an abandoned horse-drawn mower-reaper at Old Carnasserie. It was probably mostly used for cutting rushes on the hill grazing.
This is the grindstone at the abandoned settlement of Old Carnasserie. The moss and lichens on the stone give an indication of how long it has been since it was last used.
I squashed a few of these moving the log into position for taking the photograph, and these things are full of bright yellow fluid. The bracket in the photo is about the size of my thumbnail.
Photographed in the sunshine on Sunday afternoon.
