Scotland – Millbuies Loch

Friday was our last full day in Speyside, and we had yet to investigate the Loch that was just five mintues awat from the cottage. DSCF2025First though, we had a last trip into Elgin to see the town centre NOT on a Sunday. Big improvement. There are several thousand charity shops, which we investigated, and a geeky comic-SF type one where I bought the goodies on the right. The Four Marys FTW! We also found the exact jacket for which Ellie had been searching for weeks.

Dscf1922 We’d probably never have noticed Millbuies Loch if our Twitter chum @edinburghjo hadn’t told us about it. This secluded little treasure gave us a relaxing and peaceful stroll. Except when I fell over, obviously, and bruised my right buttock.

DSCF1932 Buzzards “skee”-ed above, and water-boatmen “ski”-ed on the placid waters (ha ha, see what I did there?), surrounded by towering trees. The loch is well-stocked with fish, as evidenced by the anglers in the boat there.


Dscf1953This is the view I was turning to look at when I fell over. There should have been a warning sign – “Danger, these trees have roots that you can trip over”. But there wasn’t.





I like this photo that Mary took, cos of the perspective.

A beck burbling into the loch.
