You’ll Take the High Road

Posting is likely to be a little sporadic this week. We’re on a little holiday in the Scottish Highlands and network coverage is pretty much non existent. I think I like having a little break from the constant facebook, Twitter and Instagram updates though.

The elevated section is 30metres high and have superb views of the mountain. My camera does not do them justice. It is designed to showcase the environment without damaging or disturbing it. The section through the forest … Continue reading Put Them in a Tree Museum
