Heilan Coos an' a' that!

I went on a such a good walk on Sunday.

We had glorious weather and beautiful surroundings. We went to Glen Lednock near Comrie for our walk and it was great!

Before the Highland clearances in the 18th century Glen Lednock had 21 different settlements (clans) comprising over 350 structures and 25 corn-drying kilns. There is not much left to show for it, but there is still a lot to see - the Shaky Bridge, Deil's Cauldron, the Wee Cauldron, Melville's Monument and a Hobbit Hole, oh and the coos!

    Hey, I never thought about that Johanna, but know I am not going to be able to get that image out of my head!

    Hey Helen, I didn't get too close, but close enough. They were lovely.

    Hey Tanita, what are you like? You can't go in it you know :)

    Hi WendyIt is a lovely area. Did you go further and go up the Munro?

    Hi Anne, I thought he looked cuddly, but I kept my wits about me and didn't try the notion out :)

    My too Lysy :)

    It was a good walk Corrine, although I was glad of a walking stick for coming back down the steep hill.

    Hi Pia, it was great!

    Especially the hairy bits Ricki :)

    Hi Elyse, Good! I hope everyone comes to visit Scotland at some point in their lives.
