Thought I might escape the midges here but there were quite a lot accompanying me on this otherwise pleasant stroll. Highlight for me was the view across Firth of Cromarty to Ben Rinnes, the Convals and Bin of Cullen, none of which shows up too well in my photos. Never mind, still a good wee walk with good views.
