Isle Of Luing. #Slate #Island #Photo www.henni.photo

Luing, one of the Scottish Slate Islands.

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni

The Isle of Luing (pronounced Ling!) is well worth a visit if you are in that neck of the woods.  A short ferry ride from the Isle of Seil (which is itself only a 40 minute drive south from Oban).

The slate beach is fascinating – a skimmer’s paradise!

The scenery more generally is quite striking.

We also found flowers growing in unusual places.

And of course, where there are sheep shots to be had, Paul will take them.

Finally, a short summary of what we have on show in Edinburgh at the moment.

Currently, our prints and etchings are on display at McDonald-Greene Jewellers in Bruntsfield,  at Dundas Street Framers and in the Art Collective at 139 Princes Street.  All work is for sale and ready to take away, but please feel free just to go and have a look and tell us what you think. Nothing beats seeing a print on the wall – you get a much better idea of it than on a screen.

Hairy Pigs on Easdale Island

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni

Having summoned the ferry to take us from Easdale village to Easdale Island by pressing the bell, we thought we’d probably be back on the next scheduled one about half an hour later.  After all, it’s a small island and we had visited it previously.  We had not anticipated the lure of the woolly pig or the blonde Mangalica pig, according to Wikipedia.

We found a sign saying ‘Pigs’ and followed the direction in which it pointed.  We came across a sunken area with a couple of these lovely Mangalica snoozing away – this is the female.

Once we got closer, we realised that there was a large litter of tiny piglets sprawled over the male pig – we later established they were about 2 weeks old.  They started to move around as we got closer.

Clearly, it was tea-time so they all made for the mother and started suckling.  She did her best to sleep on.

After a lot of wriggling, they managed to line up so they could all get in to feed.

Happy little piglets!

Once fed, they all toddled off.

And back to dad – perhaps he has more body heat but the challenge was for the whole litter to climb on top of him and find a secure perch.

There were several false starts and not all climbing was elegant.

Some tried a double-decker approach to hold on.

Eventually, they managed to form a neat line although the one at the end didn’t look to secure and more wriggling, slipping and re-climbing followed.

Looking quite contented here.

They look much more comfortable lying snuggled up next to their dad – well, apart from the one underneath but it looked happy enough.

The sow slept on presumably happy that the boar was looking after their little family.

If you want to visit the pigs, they are owned by the folk who run the Easdale B&B which looks like a very peaceful place to stay.

A Visit To Burghead on the Moray Coast (2 of 2)

Following on from our post on the Burghead Harbour area, here are some shots from our wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn.

There’s an extensive beach that starts just next to the harbour area, with easy access.

Along the beach are old Second World War fortifications, primarily tank traps and pill boxes (bunkers), the majority of which lean at a range of angles due their sandy foundations.

Set back from the beach on part of the range of dunes are some hardy trees that stand up to the North Sea wind blowing across them.

A Visit To Burghead on the Moray Coast (1 of 2)

We were back again at the excellent Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, an ideal location for discovering the Inverness, Moray and Speyside areas (and beyond).

Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;

After a chat with our hosts about what they would recommend, we consulted the ‘walkers bible’ the Walk Highlands website,  and decided to go to Burghead for a look around, then have a wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn, leaving options for a further extended walk or a small trip elsewhere.

This post focuses on the harbour area, with another one on Burghead Beach – you can tell, we do like a nice beach.

The harbour is clearly used by fishermen so lots of fishing paraphernalia – piles of nets for instance.

This is not a fisherman but a young model in a photo-shoot posing as a fisherman – fairly convincing I guess.

There were many cormorants in and around the harbour – this one is about to take flight.

There was also a friendly harbour seal popping up out of the water.

And here’s Lynn lining up shots of the cormorants that were gathered at the end of the long breakwater at the harbour entrance.

We then headed up to the cliffs at the edge of town to get a better view.

And then back down down and along to the end of the breakwater for a closer look at the cormorants and the small tower at the entrance on this side of the harbour.

A Walk Beside The River Beauly, near Inverness, plus an amble along Nairn Beach.

We used the Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, as our base for the Beauly River walk with our hosts. It is on the Walk Highlands website, as the River Beauly and Lovat Bridge circuit walk and is a nice moderate length for some gentle exercise to help justify some nice food and drink later. We also had an amble along the beach at Nairn.

Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;

A quick note for photographers – if you go to do this walk, you will be near Fffordes Photographic, a place with a good reputation. We didn’t have time to visit when we were there, so can’t describe it more than that (yet).

And so to the images. Firstly, a mix of natural and man-made with this pylon part of the transmission network from the hydro-electric plant nearby.

And here’s Beaufort Castle, on the River Beauly, emerging from the trees. Former home of Lord Lovat of WW2 Commando fame.

We were on the part of the walk beside the river as the sun broke through to highlight the trees on the bank opposite.
