Nearly 9 pm and no accomodation yet, but I enjoyed nevertheless this beautiful landscape in the evening sun after a long journey from Allendale in Northumberland.

Herrliche Landschaft in der Abendsonne. Eine lange Reise lag hinter mir nach einer Fahrt von Allendale in Northumberland. Fast 21 Uhr und trotz Suche noch keine Unterkunft. Aber ich war mir sicher, etwas zu finden.

Jurgis, thank you so much! I appreciate your comments very much! Kind regards, May

Billy, thanks a lot, people usually don't believe, how beautiful the countryside of Scotland is, they usually only know pictures of the lochs or the sea. Best regards, May

Dear May,

You must have found accommodation that evening I presume? It was the need of petrol or food that often became pressing as I drove on and on, exploring till almost midnight - hours and hours after everything had closed. And for the same reason, why would one not be enjoying every moment of daylight in such fascinating and beautiful landscape. That magic hour for photography seems to be hours long in the summer of northern Europe.

Aberdeenshire - the beautiful landscape of my Scottish forebears!

Best regards,

Dear Ian, that day, I drove from Allendale in Northumberland up to Aberdeen till I found something suitable (picture with grey granite houses) at about 10:30 pm. I started to look after Dundee and went on and on.

I was rewarded with this beautiful sunlit sight on a country road between Stonehaven and Peterculter. It was a weekday and all B&Bs as well as the hotels were full. They said, it was because there were so many oil workers on the East coast. I knew about your forebears, I still have dozens of photos to upload from this travel around Scotland from last year.

Kindest regards, May
