On the upside the grounds had a stream running through them which yielded a pair of dippers! They were showing well albeit in the gloom under the overhanging trees!
After that we stopped at Rosslyn chapel, made famous by Dan Brown in the Da Vinci Code novel. Apparently visitor numbers quadrupled after that! Fascinating place, and you can see why symbologists love it.
First trip on Sunday morning was to Loch Garten to pay homage to the ospreys. I remember visiting here in probably 1975 or 1976 when the RSPB were first showing off the nest. It still attracts crowds, with EJ and Odin the resident pair already having 3 eggs.
After that we went for a walk around the woods. One of the last surviving areas of old Caledonian pine forest in the country, the views and shapes of the trees are amazing. Loch an Eilein was looking particularly moody in the low cloud and mist.
