Highland Fling

Our vacation exploration  took us round the Perthshire Highlands to Cairngorms mountain range and back to the Royal Deeside.

The village of Kirkmicheal
Situated between Glenshee and Blairgowrie in Perthshire.

The river Ardle

Rural Idyll

Glen Shee
Known as the glen of the fairies it takes its name from the Gaelic "sith" meaning fairy
and the old meeting place at the standing stone behind the present day church is called Dun Shith 
or Hill of the Fairies.


Britain's largest National Park.
The Cairngorms has the most extensive range of high mountains with a vast, tundra-like wilderness,
it is highest, coldest and snowiest plateau in Britain. 
This is encircled by the beautiful valleys of the Rivers Spey and Dee. 

A village in Aberdeenshire Highlands. 
Situated at the upper course of the River Dee.

Built in 1628 by the Earl of Mar and now part of the Farquharson estate of Invercauld.
