River walk to remember what sounds unlikely but is true

Moira and I first walked this route in May 2013 when I was trying out a new camera lens and what I ended up with was a series of shots of flora and fauna not suitable for a trip report.

Re: A Walk In The Ochils Recalling Memories of Glen.

Only just seen this and what a handsome boy Glen was! Seeing your photos reminds me of my black and yellow lab duo, now departed but never forgotten. Also love the wild flower photos too. Your new camera is giving good results! :D

Inverness could be called "The Venice of the far north". We have the river, the canal, the loch and the seaside. Just need the gondoliers!


Gondoliers in kilts maybe?

Live entertainment from otters in Caledonian canal

With second lockdown firmly upon us and running out of local walks we had not done too many times already we settled on this canal and river circuit we had enjoyed doing the first time.
