|Glenshee – The Glen of the Fairies|
“ What is it that makes Glenshee so special? Not just its beauty – though that is undeniable. Not just its people – though numbered among them are some of the most colourful characters of Scottish history and folklore. It is special because there is nowhere in the world quite like it. It is wild, romantic, unbelievably beautiful, and it is steeped in history and legend. It has always been known as Glenshee, or as it is in the Gaelic, Gleann Shith, the Glen of the Fairies. It has never had any other name, and until the old tongue died out the inhabitants were known as Sithichean ai Ghlinnshith or ‘Elves of Glenshee’.”
Taken on wednesday on my way to work, i was fed up of the motorway having been on it for six hours so took a detour, and this is what i found, my first ever sight of snow covered mountains which took my breath away. thanks for looking.

very nice image of this expansive rolling landscape. The deep blue sky and clouds are a pleasing counterpoint to the brown and white hills. I think it best to have avoided, or cloned out, the tire tracks on the right and the sign or whatever on the left. Interesting note. Tfs Richard
