I’m just not finding the time to edit and upload photographs as I would like but here is one to be going on with.
This is taken from the south side of Loch Tay and looking over the loch towards Ben Lawers (lost in the mist and distance). The building in the foreground is a ruined croft, quite possibly one of the many tens of thousands deserted at the time of the Highland Clearances, a particularly shameful and shocking episode in British history.
The ruined homes do make an ideal subject for photographers and I hope that, like me, you see that beautiful tree as a fitting, if accidental, memorial to so much suffering by so many innocent people.
Thanks for looking – please look at the larger view if you can!!
