Last week I stayed near North Kessock on the Beauly Firth, just a short hop over the Kessock Bridge to Inverness. I took the opportunity to wander about the area on a grey windy day and took some pictures and videos. Scottish summer indeed!
Summer in ScotlandAlthough this does not look like July. It is in not an unexpected July day Scotland. It was not raining much though... It was also a balmy 15C! The place we stayed had a wee conservatory and I took the opportunity to sit in it on my own on a couple of evenings, with a beer and a book.

Oft painted skies ever changing,
Clouds hang suspended in air and light.
If only I could settle my mind & focus, I could see the world as it is meant to be seen.
An infinity of moments that have never been seen nor will ever be repeated.
Sky and beer - a heady combination...
