Penny admiring the view
She didn't seem to mind the snow much and it wasn't that cold so no need for either of the two coats I had packed for her!
There was a lovely mix of the winter snow and autumn light
We got to what we thought was the top but as it often goes wit hill walking, it was actually a false summit! By this point my dad wasn't keen on going any further but said he would sit on a rock there and I could go on. I felt bad leaving him but I was too near to turn back so I practically ran uphill to the summit with Penny in tow.
Before long I was at the cairn, the lovely thing about these smaller hills is you still get a lovely view and most of the time you have the summit to yourself
Looking rather proud at getting to the top
On route to find her dad, the minute she spotted him she was off like a..... whippet
You can't beat a day like this
Ok I will pose again for you!
Time to head back down although I could have happily stayed up there for longer
I couldn't get enough of this view I thought it looked so pretty
On route home I spotted some lovely reflections through the trees and luckily there was a spot to pull up for some photos.
The sun was just starting to go down by now
On route home we quickly stopped off by loch Lubnaig as again I could see reflections but by now the sun had gone down but it was still pretty enough
I really enjoyed my day out, it was just what I needed as I hadn't been out walking properly for a couple of weekends and it really perked me up
I also spotted a new breed of deer on one of my more recent walks The reality is I bought this as a novelty as all the money goes to a dog charity. It did come in handy when I was at the top of The Cairnwell on Sunday there as it was strong winds on top and she isn't a hardy mountain dog!

In Beauly it snowed all night, let's just hope this white cover stays a bit longer...
I must knit a hat like that for my husband

Ha don't worry, that is just a typical Penny look She has one of those faces and she was looking at my sister for a biscuit.

Second last reflection shot for me. Superb. When I am really old, not just old, I shall be glad I can still go out and see sights like that.
I know what you mean, there is something special about being rewarded by a stunning view at the end of the walk but at the same time it would be a shame if people who weren't physically able were to miss out on this.
heatheronthehills wrote:Lovely photos Sarah; the reflections were stunning!! it's also so nice to see natural photos ie not photoshopped, showing the real beauty of Scotland. Looks like all 3 of you had a great day..love he dogs antler headgear!!! Wonder if they make human versions?
Thanks, that means a lot as I don't do lots to my photos only a few minor touch ups. Scotland is such a beautiful place, especially on days like that where it enhances itself.
tweedledog wrote:Lovely pictures and, of course, I especially enjoyed the ones of Penny who mostly looked very pleased with herself - though not so sure about the woolly hat My whippet is fine n the snow until it permanently reaches his chest. Then I get that rolling brown eyes look cast in my direction.
I think it is a female thing buying the hat all of the money goes towards galgos rescue in Spain so all for a good cause Mine is 10 and a 1/2 now so more sensitive to things although she doesn't mind the snow too much what she isn't keen on is standing around in the freezing cold and strong winds, even with a coat on!
