A silvery horizon

Patchwork views

Patchwork views

Stone circles

Today we begin our journey south again. We also follow the coastline for a while – the sea a silvery grey – the same colour as the sky – impossible to see the horizon. Easy to understand how ‘whiteout’ occurs to pilots. In the very distance we can see oilrigs.

We then traverse a mixture of farmland and forestry and then barren mountains with dozens of stationary ski lifts. The most amazing patchwork of colours and we are not sure how these patterns occur. Perhaps they burn cultivate sections each year – though what for we don’t know. Quite spectacular though.

Not long before we reach Aboyne (where we are staying the night) we visit some more medieval stones circle – the Tomnaverie Stone Circle.
