Clachnaben: the promise and the reality

A typical late summer hill walk in Scotland...





Oh, and our friend Alison (in the red fleece) wants me to point out that that is not her normal hairstyle!

  1. Is that mist or drizzle ? Or both?
    Best that you did it now before the bad weather arrives! Bertie - you look as though you are in your element.

  3. Bertie, that looks eerie. Fun though. The wind sounds like bombs or something. We would love to run around up there!

  7. It seems to us that if one lives in Scotland, one must have a dog! It looks like the perfect place to walk!! So beautiful. Thanks for sharing your walk with us Bertie!

  8. Hi Bertie,
    Gosh, you have such lovely country around you for walkies. Iowa is pretty flat around us, mostly farm fields. It gets more hilly near the Mississippi river on the east edge of Iowa. Very pretty there during Fall time.

    Don't you chase the bunnies, mice or whatever? Do you really come when called? Wow. We'd still be runnin' up and down those rocks...

    And I don't think you could be ANY more handsome!

  13. We thought all hill walkers had the same hairstyle!
    Great walk in Scotland - loved the mist descending.
    Being quick as we are being cut off a lot and getting very fed up with it!

  14. So tell us! Are you REALLY off leash the whole time???
    My gosh how much fun would that be? (Moma is so jelly. We could really care less. But she keeps saying ... I'd LOVE that!)

    You are amazing, Bertie. We're gonna learn a lot from you.

  15. Dear Mr. Bertie:

    Thank you for the kind comments on our blog today. I have long prided myself on clarity and that you recognize that is a pleasure to me. I'm grateful.

    Now, tell me what a Toodle Pip is and how do I get one of my own?

    Cheers and meows,
