Outstanding trees...they outlive generations and will live well beyond.
The light in the Highlands changes constantly and when it is covered din a layer of snow there is a special ambience reflected in the highs keys and stark architectural silhouettes of the trees in winter.
All around us, often unseen and unnoticed.

Highland homes past and present
The Highlands is full of clues to the past, most visibly the brutal removal of people for sheep in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 150,000 people were forcibly cleared from their homes often of past generations and often with short notice and much brutality. Many of these original crofts remain as silent witnesses.
A selection of photos from 2000-2008 that are very special to me.
A working Doo'cut near Cadboll House or, as it is now known, Glenmorangie House. It sits along side an avenue of trees that connects the seafront to the house.
A trip in 2008 revealed a country fast developing towards high end tourism whilst at the time preserving it's heritage.
My favourite place and home from home next to the Highlands.
