At the end of the walk from Aberlour to Craigellachie on the Speyside Way, it was well worth the effort of making the short detour to go and take a closer look at Thomas Telford's fine, elegant bridge.
The approach to the bridge.
The bridge was a symbolic setting for the amalgamation of two regiments.
Staying at Grantown-on-Spey, decided to walk some short stretches of the Speyside Way, which runs from Aviemore to Buckie, much of the way using the old Speyside railway track. The station at Carron is no longer there, but the little ornamental train is a reminder of the past.
Part of the old Imperial Distillery buildings at Carron. Most of the old buildings have been pulled down but a new distillery is being built.
The sign is still standing at the disused railway halt.
Married. Semi-retired. I live in a village on the coast in the East Neuk of Fife. Interested in the flora and fauna of this lovely area, and recording my observations of wild-life at the shore, in the countryside, and in our garden. Also, a bit about the local area and some reviews of books, concerts, plays that I've enjoyed.
Although, I hope to take photos of what I see, I am not an expert photographer, however, I hope that the photos will be a good record of my observations of the natural world in a small part of Scotland.
Thank you for viewing. Unless otherwise specifically stated, all photographs have all been taken by me with a Fugi Finepix camera (A920 or S1000fd since the beginning of 2009). Happy for them to be downloaded for personal use or educational purposes, but please do not use any of the photos for commercial gain.
