Both feeling under the weather we headed out to Troup head for a short, easy walk.

Ended the day with a stroll along Banff beach with wonderful evening light and very good visibility out to the eastern Sutherland coast with, I think, the 65 miles distant Morven and co. showing up very clearly.

Our return to Banff beach a couple of days later was equally pleasant:

Great photographs we thoroughly enjoyed this walk. We saw two spaniels who romped and roamed through the waves. A peaceful beach. I recommend it. Some lovely sunsets. A good view of The Sutherland Hills where there are a good many boat trips to view the dolphins. In The Moray Firth there are 85 dolphins. The musical boat trips are well worth a journey.
