Gotcha

Today is the 5th gotcha day for our rescue dog Tilley. 

She has become a little bit naughty lately. A bit like a miss behaving child over at the grandparents. At home she will ask for a carrot, her evening snack, sit bum to the ground and would never take an empty crips bag from the coffee table. 

But over MiL, she will just dip her bum when asked to sit. Even taken crips out of the bags of the table. Sneak out into the kitchen and nick a carrot without asking.

Can we get angry with her when she is naughty … nope 🙂

Azub Six

I should ride more, I have become lazy over the last half year. Though, I managed to ride a few times in Scotland this year.

This photo is taken in the South Locks area of Isle of Lewis.

Stunning bit of the world.

Bothy

I have tried for three years to find Mangersta Bothy, aka Eagle’s Nest. The first two years I just went from memory and old maps, mainly no clue of where it would be other than in the Uig area or there about.

This year I found a blog post with a better description of where it would be. Looked on the map and narrowed it further down, and off we went.

I had led us in the right direction and just as I said to Peli I think it should be in this vicinity. She said – there it is! She had spotted the skylight window.

A walk to the hills

Spend a few days in Scotland and had a walk to the hills.

I stopped near this path, just to let the mutt out for a rest as we have been driving for a long time.

Only after we got home I learned that the hill in the background is called Dumyat Hil (Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Mhèad).
