Ruud wants the weather to be GRIMMER. That's a novelty.

Are these not two of the most beautiful photographs ever? They were taken by our guest in November, Ruud Putten. Thank you Ruud for letting us use them.

Hi John,

Our stay in Kentallen and Glencoe was very nice. The weather not so much but I wished for some grim weather to make the photographs more interesting.

Glen Etive was for me the most exciting place to visit. Very nice scenery and lovely light at moments. Unlucky as I was, I slipped on the last day and wrecked my lens. This one is for the insurance. Physically I’m alright except for some bruises. All that for the perfect image!

The weather of course was terrible at times but we didn’t expect to have sub-tropical conditions. I hoped for some snow on the mountains and we had. The pouring rain on two days we took for granted. Good for a day to Oban where we had a very nice meal at the harbour. Absolutely wonderful seafood platters! The things we have to bring next time are wellies. My size 11 feet didn’t fit in the ones in the backhouse.

We will certainly visit Glencoe in the future. There is so much more to explore, also in other seasons. So, probably you will hear from us soon again.
