Perfect Autumn Weekend

 Fine walks

Splendid scenery

Fiery Autumn colours

A tranquil loch (yes, for a nanosecond, we had no wind....)

And at the end of it all, a cosy evening in front of the fire with a good book.


  1. It sounds perfect to us too!!

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

  2. Oooooh! Bertie! I want to visit you and go for walks in that marvelous land. So very, very lovely. I hope you like goat kisses because here come some....kiss, kiss, kiss, burp, kiss kiss...oh...excuse me! Tee hee.

  3. We're coming too...I may have to get some more substantial rainwear...

    You seem to have recovered you foxy good spirits...

    I heard Eric got a hooooge ticket for his driving from the police. Wonder how he's going to pay that one off...

    BTW, is that heather you're sitting in in your header pic? When does it bloom???

    I want some...

    Wonder if'd it grow here?


    Flirty ones,

  5. Oh Bertie, how beautiful the scenery is in your pics!
    Our human is so very jealous of Gail's cottage! We trust at the end of your lovely day walking you enjoyed a wee dram with your book and cosy fire.
    We must say you are looking most handsome and tall!
    Thank you for your concern for Auntie Bailey - you truly are the most sensitive and caring nephew.
    Indeed no other bloggers worried about poor Auntie Bailey sitting outside the loos!!!
    love you lots
    Your Adoring Aunties xxxx

  7. Bertie, its just how I remembered it from the field trip a beautiful place, I'm not surprized the mini van got stuck, in the day light that muddy lane is very narrow!!! I would have loved to see that tranquil lock.
    Plus you have a real wood fire
    All you need now is a pint of beer :)

  19. Hey there my Bertie-bud':

    "I sees how it is,
    I really do!
    You're on a field trip
    with only YOU!

    How could you do that,
    my bestest mate?
    Leaving me behind?
    Consider your fate!

    I loves the trees
    and all the hills
    grassy verges
    and waterfall spills!

    But left me behind
    You did! You did!
    No field-trip for me
    Despite my bid!

    You went by yourself
    forgot us it seems!
    Taking on Scotland
    not sharing our dreams!!!

    So next time my friend,
    you must NOT FORGET...
    To take me along...
    I'm your best bet!
