A Scottish holiday

We regularly go away for a Scottish holiday. If you’ve ever been to Scotland you will know the weather can be …unpredictable. You might need everything from suncream to a raincoat in a single day.

Our recent getaway just as lockdown restrictions were being lifted resulted in a nice break. So grateful to be able to go on holiday we weren’t really too bothered about the weather. After all there isn’t much you can do about it anyway.

While sunshine would have been nice it really seemed to elude us.

The above scene was typical for the week. From a photographic point of view the light was flat. Here is another example:

Apart from a lack of decent light for photo purposes we had a good holiday and enjoyed ourselves.

The slight drawback of going anywhere on holiday in the UK is you never know what the weather will do. In the past we’ve been camping and it’s rained for a week. Equally we’ve had glorious sunshine and everything in between. In a normal hoilday season that is one reason people tend to go abroad. You have a much better chance of it being warm and sunny.

Unfortunately this has been anything but a normal season, as anyone working in tourism and anyone taking a holiday will testify.

To finish on a more upbeat note here is the final picture for this post:

Whatever and wherever you may go on holiday this year enjoy yourself.
