Home from the Hills

We have just had a lovely week away in Scotland staying in the Spittal of Glenshee, an area noted for its skiing in the winter. The holiday was a coach trip and we stayed in the Spittal of Glenshee Hotel in a beautiful valley.

We were lucky with the weather, although not as lucky as these photos suggest!

The tour was titled "Scottish Autumn Splendour" and the colours were certainly beautiful.

You look as if you've had a wonderfully inspirational trip, I love all these great autumn colours. Your hotel looks great from the photos, very in-keeping. Thanks for sharing it all, made me feel even more determined to explore Scotland.
I too was very saddened to hear the news about Julia, she was a great inspiration to so many people, including me, and she will be sorely missed.

Hi Julie
What wonderful photo's. I love a trip up to Scotland. We usually visit Stathyre and stay in a log cabin at the side of Loch Lubnaig, its wonderful. We havn't been able to make it this year so thankyou so much for sharing your inspirational trip. We must book for next year. Your textile work is beautiful! xx

Aren't the names of Scottish places evocative? Even the Universities..I would have chosen one becasue of the name if I was at college now...'Duncan of Jordanstone'.doesn't it make you want to enrol immediately?
