Flowers In The Glen …

Had a drive down one my favourite glens last Sunday, Glen Lyon.
The weather wasn’t great, but it was still as beautiful, magnificent hills, crisp fresh air, clean clear waters, lush greens and all was peaceful.
The Heather is really starting to show the now and the countryside has an abundance of wild flowers.
I didn’t get many photos, but tried to capture something each time we stopped to let Barclay out, or stopped for me to open gates on a fabulous K Road (Meaning unnamed roads/tracks, which are my favourites & I’ve christened them K Roads, those who have been out with me, will know exactly what I am on about).
Heres a small selection of just some of the flora we saw
