Queen Anne's Lace - Anthriscus sylvestrisWhite is the predominant colour in the Serpentine Walk and the disused railway track at Lower Largo. Cow parsley (or Queen Anne's Lace, the more attractive name) lines the path.
May or hawthorn blossom is also in full flower. The first flowers on the hawthorn appeared around the 1st May this year which was a few days earlier than in the last couple of years.

On our trip to Invernessshire we visited Strathpeffer - a Victorian spa town and once health resort.The Eagle stone is a Class 1 Pictish symbol stone on blue gneiss situated on a low hill on the northern edge of Strathpeffer. It depicts the symbols of an arch and an eagle.
We then visited the Rogie Falls a few miles away on the Ullapool Road. These are spectacular falls with a wooded background on the River Blackwater
