Sma' Glen, Perthshire, Central Scotland
These photos were taken one afternoon a few weeks ago while driving through the Sma' Glen
and Glen Quaich, then over a small hill road to Loch Tay.
Entering Glen Quaich,a small wild glen about five miles long.
The River Quaich at the point where we take the road over the hills.
This steep and narrow hill road is closed in the winter months.
Mist gathering on the hill tops. The road on the far hillside is used by farmers and shooting parties.
On the windswept hilltop,our first view of Schiehallion - the pointed mountain in the distance.
The Gaelic name is Sidh Chailleann - The Fairy Hill.
City dog Maddy looking slightly out of her comfort zone.
On the other side the landscape becomes softer,and the sun emerges,as the road descends
towards Kenmore on the shore of Loch Tay.
