|Small spring flowers were blooming and during the trip we saw lots of daffodils in bloom.|
|Watching over the garden at Laurel Villa.|
|Laurel Villa was a nice place to stay. The breakfast room is on the right.|
|Before the sheep encounter, we met some Highland coos.|
|There is snow in the Highlands ahead!|
|This was a good place to stop and observe a large flock of sheep.|
|The sheep posed nicely for the camera.|
|On the winding roads, this sign was a good heads up.|
|Between the raindrops the reflections were interesting, reminding me of Gollum, Frodo, and Sam in the Dead Marshes...don't look!|
|This place had a magical look.|
|There's something to be said for planting trees!|
|It was fun to wander around the rocks, bridge and falls.|
|I liked the tunnel, also.|
|The water is the same root beer color as the falls we saw on a hike last summer up north.|
On the way toward Inverness, we took a break and I visited the Hairy Coo Shop. The sculpture caught my eye and inside were lots of locally made goods. I purchased sheep and coo brooches.
We happened upon our first distillery that was open. Dalwhinnie distillery is in a lovely setting and it was a good place to stretch our legs, tour, and taste some whiskey with chocolate truffles.
