More... Dealbhan bho Alba

Dìtheanan aig Inbher-Lochy (River Lochy, Lochaber, Alba)

Daraich (craobhan) aig Liddesdale, Cruachan, Alba

Feur aig Cùil Lodair (Culloden Moor)

Just some more photos in black and white from Scotland. These were all very stirring places to be, especially because it was relatively uncrowded when we visited them. There are ghosts among the ruins, taibhsean, that whisper in the wind and rustle the grasses. Every square inch of this land has blood and history, stretching back before recorded time, and it is where we came from. I felt strangely at home.
Inverlochy was sweet and quiet, Liddesdale forbidding and grim, Culloden tragic and poignant.

I love your photos. They are lovely. I miss Scotland. Went there a few years ago. Found your blog by way of blogspot help. Hope you don't mind.

Thank you. We had such a wonderful trip there--all too brief.
