We travelled up to Grantown on Spey on Friday, and as we passed Pitlochry, the hills had a light covering of snow, with a bit more on the Cairngorms. Autumn Watch will be starting soon (Tuesday) on TV - just down the road from Grantown, and it looks like they will also see a touch of winter.
Earlier today we were exercising my son's dog in the nearby Anagach Woods
Which has an attractively wood-carved notice
But our chief reason for travelling to Grantown was to celebrate our younger granddaughter's Birthday. One of the more unusual presents is displayed below.
I'm not sure if "This Farming Life" is displayed south of the Border on BBC TV, however it features Lynn Cassells and Sandra Baer who have taken over an old croft (LynBreck) on the road between Grantown and Tomintoul. Our Granddaughters are keen viewers - so were delighted to have Lynn delivering the eggs.
And this afternoon there was a party - with a bouncy castle, which I refrained from trying out, since I need to be capable of driving south tomorrow.
