As I promised I now carry on with our Scotland trip. This time I take you with me into a small but very beautiful garden: Attadale Gardens.
Walking through the entrance you will be welcomed by this beautiful pond.
Always a stunning eye-catcher: Gunnera. I really would love to have them in my garden too, but unfortunately they are not very hardy.
A beautiful photo sujet but private ground and not open for visitors.
But who wants to visit houses when such a gorgeous garden waits to be explored?
Here my hubby was just stunned. How do they manage to even draw a pattern into the lawn?! That's just brilliant.
We visited the garden in August, but we could already see signs of fall.
Of course art was included as well. And if I would once again feel, that I've got to many pounds on my hips, I'd come out to this sculpture, look down at myself again and would be assured that everything is alright.
The Japanese Garden... well, I could have missed that. I know that such gardens exude a lot of rest and peace but somehow they belong for me not into the Highlands but to Asia.
The garden was absolutely gorgeous even when we haven't seen it at its best season. You must know that in this garden, like in a lot of other places around the Highlands, grow many Rhododendrons and Azaleas. It must be a firework of colors during springtime.

Time didn't stop unfortunately and we travelled on to Inverness, the capital city of the Highlands.
Victorian Market. It's an old market hall, which would be so lovely to visit if the shops were a bit more special.
Inverness is a small city with some very beautiful buildings.
Of course it has its own castle. But it's not open for the public, it houses a court.
The Greig Street Bridge over the river Ness swings quite a bit when you walk over it... that's fun.
Of course we didn't leave the city with empty hands and stomach, but to be honest... as real bumpkins we prefer the countryside of the Highlands.
Sadly our Scotland trip will soon find an end. But the next time I'm gonna tell you where we finally found our two blog reporters :o).
Habt einen schönen Sonntag und einen guten Wochenstart!
Have a lovely Sunday and a good start into the new week.
