Early November flurries of snow carpeted the Ochils bringing errie quiet, until Poppy arrives. Bounding in circles, snorting and rolling in the cold stuff, a happy dog.
Some more photographs from the Ochil woodland above Alva and Tillicloultry. See Ochil Woodland part 1
The woods behind Alva and Tillicoultry offer great views of the surrounding Forth valley and the surrounding woodland. It is and easy ramble anyone can do with several routes and good paths. See Ochil Woodland 2
Following on from my Spring Beauty series these are a few views of the Ochil’s in the new spring lush green finery. See Spring Beauty series
Some remarkable displays of sunlight around Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and the Ochil hills.
On 4th June 2012 there were thousands of beacons lit to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. On the Ochils highest hill, Dumyat, its beacon was lit later than the others so a complete Ochil Panorama of all beacons alight was not possible. However beacons above Alva, Tillicoultry and Dollar were ablaze and visible.
