Birnie and Gaddon Lochs on Christmas Day

Looking through the trees at Birnie Loch.
With the tail end of Storm Barbara still blowing decided it was too windy for a beach walk and went instead to the nature reserve of Birnie and Gaddon Loch.
 Plenty of bird life, mute swans and various ducks

A young  mute swan still with some grey feathers.
Fungi on a dead tree trunk.

The Queen's View

Very cold and frosty weather (-5°C) in Pitlochry last week but we were rewarded with sparkling views. The Queen's view in particular was spectacular.
