    Most of these fine wee dwellings are acquainted with grunge to one degree or another, but this one pulls the eye to its roof, & no nonsense. Methinks there’s a spindly little Rowan competing in the foreground there. What say you? A dashing image.

  • I concur,cheers m’dear

    Wonderful find and capture Jamie. It is such a nice area. I have a similar shot from this area. I thought at first it was the same cottage from the other side, but I’m not so sure now. My one is from April 2005.

  • No Tom,I know your Loch an Eilean walk past it on the way around the Loch.This one is down the road from the car park in the other direction then onto one of the Rothiemurchus paths back to the centre.
