 New Year's Greetings to everyone from a very cold Portlaw!
I did ring the bell a few times myself that night.

Canadian Arctic Brent Geese, back as usual for the winter!

 Searching an hour to find them, when suddenly a flock of fifteen flew in quite near me. This was best of many photographs taken. They usually winter also near Barnawee Bridge, at Baile na nGall, also near the Coinigear sand bank.

Interesting carved stone

The Standing Stones of Callanish, Harris & Lewis, Outer Hebrides, Scotland.


Callanish . . . the reason for trip to the Hebrides, along with Glencoe in Argyllshire, in 2010, as I then had a co-driver, which I felt was essential. Distance travelled - almost 2,500 miles.  Islands visited - Skye, Harris & Lewis, Mull and Iona. Eleven ferries used! Was leaning against stone here in case blown over by the wind! Being an extremely busy place, we had to wait until a coach-load of other tourists was gone.

There's much to read about Callanish at:

Evening in Girvan

 Arran on the horizon, where I holidayed in 1956, 1980 approx. and in 2010!
Cycled there from Waterford + two ferries, in 1956.
Arran is situated in the Firth of Clyde.
