Loch Lomond - Scotland

Hello Everyone, I hope all is well with you. I had a fantastic holiday in Scotland and have many pictures to share with you.

On arrival at Glasgow Airport we were met by our coach and headed for the Western Highlands, stopping en-route for a breath of fresh Scottish air and coffee at Loch Lomond.


It is a beautiful coastal village, where everyone gardens. 
The potscaping was exciting to see, so many different containers.

Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary at Little Red House.
Thank for visiting and have a wonderful day!!!

Beautiful photos of your trip. I love Scotland and would like to go back someday now that I have a digital camera. Film was very 'dear' in 1992. :-) My hubby flew out of Fredericton 2 hours late today due to Irene but made his connecting flight to Winnipeg (just boarding now) as all flights were delayed. Thanks for visiting. Blessings, Pamela

Hey, Welcome Home!!! I know you've got some wonderful vacation photos to share & I can't wait.

I really like the framed photos of your work in your powder room, Jen. They look VERY professional! I never thought of doing that. Of course, most of mine are of FOOD, so they'd have to go in the kitchen. LOL

Rest up a bit & take it easy for awhile. Travel is very stressful.

Hugs,
Rett

Lovely mosaics of your visit to beautiful Scotland, I look forward to seeing many more pics. You may be interested in a blog of a friend who lived in Surrey and moved to Scotland and built their own Danish style house overlooking a Loch!! http://brookwoodletters.blogspot.com/

Hello! Thank you for dropping by and leaving such a kind comment on my blog. I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip to the Western Highlands. Despite the weather it really is the most beautiful place. I love it here and never cease to be amazed by the sheer splendour of it all. Your photos of the loch capture the light so well - it almost looks as if you had a little sun?!

Your photographs are beautiful as is your dear blog. Scotland is fantastic, isn't it?

I am shyly telling you that I am hosting a giveaway which, I think, will be of interest to you. I would very much like you to have a chance to win if and when you have a moment to pop over to my blog in France to see what you think.

All the best,
