This is a cracking wee spot on Lismore on a hot day. The loch is right in the middle of the island, and easy to miss if you’re not looking out for it. It’s a great place for a swim, too.

This photo is a wider angle view of the wee moored boat shot below. I guess the boat belongs to the folk who live in the big house. It looks like a cracking spot to live!

There was some wild weather over the weekend that I took this photo back in May…and some lovely light in between the storms.

This weekend was another Lismore Fiddle Retreat weekend, full of magical moments. Lots of chuckles, music, learning, great company, and there was plenty of rain! But the sun showed up briefly over Loch Linnhe.
Thanks Laura, for suggesting this one as a gallery photo title!

I spotetd this lovely old boat on the shore at Ballachulish. It took me a while to find an angle where I could take the photo without the huge and rather unsightly ‘for sale’ sign on the deck spoiling the picture.
Anyone want to buy a beautiful boat??
Yacht on the shores of Loch Leven, in the Scottish Highlands
A cracking atmospheric moment. I took this photo while Corran Raa were taking a break in the middle of their recent gig in Ballachulish. This shot looks West down Loch Leven

Yesterday the Innertube Map was launched online as thunder rumbled overhead and a downpour hit the city.
I’m one of 11 volunteers who have been working on creating a series of blog stories, which relate to the different lines and stops on the map. We’ve been learning how to use a raft of technology, and some of the ins and outs of good blogging. Now that the map is live, members of the public can also add their own posts, videos, audio or photos.
I decided to go out and mark day one of the online map by taking my bike and camera down one of the Innertube routes that I haven’t been along in a very long time. I headed down the brown line, and made my way to Cramond boat club, just as dusk was falling.
In contrast to the earlier torrential rain and thunderstorms, it was a lovely still evening, with just a hint of colour in the sky.

It’s hard to know which bridge to focus on when there’s just a brief window of good light in South Queensferry. Last time I was down there, I was at the rail bridge end of town. The most recent trip definitely redressed the balance.
I was through in Glasgow earlier in the year, and took a wander down to Glasgow Green, to visit my old student rowing haunts. There were no signs of boats out on the water at this time of day, but I loved the colour of the boathouses in the gloaming.

We spent a lot of our first day on Billy Currie‘s weekend workshop around the shores of Loch Ard in the Trossachs. It has some very photogenic spots.

I was looking through a whole load of photos from around Scotland last week, looking for images to use for Mairi Campbell’s CD launch event in May. I came across this one, which I took during my first visit to one of her Lismore Fiddle Retreat weekends. It made for a lovely peaceful lull before the evening house ceilidh started.
