Highlands #1

We’ve just got back from a wonderful holiday in the Scottish Highlands. We were quite lucky with the weather and my new camera has been given a good work out – I’ve taken over a 1000 photos.
On the way up,  we stopped in at New Lanark Mills.

It’s really beautiful and as the sun came out, we walked down towards the Falls of the Clyde.

We made it up to Corra Linn, which was really beautiful.

I helped support them by buying lots of wool. In the photo below, I have 10 balls of the blue at the bottom to make myself a cardigan.

One of the best bits of the holiday was the trip of the Jacobite Steam Train. The photo of the viaduct (bit blurry through the window) was used in the Harry Potter films.

I really enjoyed the train ride with lots of knitting and beautiful scenery.
The train goes to Mallaig.

I bought some yarn on the way up at Beckside Yarns – a ball of Noro Kureyon and 2 balls of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I started the Kureyon straight away and made myself some warm mitts. Pattern: Camp Out Fingerless Mitts. Yarn: Noro Kureyon. Mr took some photos for me on the harbour at Mallaig.

I’ll leave the rest to another day as I’ve got loads more photos to show.

Silence

I seem to have lost my blog mojo at the moment. I've not been in a very talkative mood of late, so I'll just share some photos without commentary... If you're curious about something feel free to comment though.
