South Loch Ness Tourist Group Litter Pick

It's the SLNTG litter pick today, where the local group of tourism businesses gets together to pick up any litter on the road from Dores/Pottery House to Foyers, along Loch Ness. Hopefully the sun will shine for us.

Signs of Spring at Last

It's been a long cold winter here in the Highlands, but the first signs of Spring are beginning to appear.

The snow-drops are out at last, and so are the crocuses. In previous years the snowdrops are finished by the time the crocuses appear, but this year they are all out at once. Just goes to show how everything has been waiting for the warmer weather.

The frogs in the Pottery House pond have also been waiting for a thaw. The water is ice-free for the first time since min-December and the amphibian activity is frenetic.
