Easter in Arran

I'm finally finding time to sort through the many photos taken over the last few months, and catch up (hopefully!) on some blog entries.

Last Easter I went to Arran for a few days.

One of the places I visited was Brodick Castle - it's a great place to visit in the springtime.

This pheasant posed beautifully for me.

I spotted this plant on a visit to a friend in Balloch, growing wild on the shores of Loch Lomond. We weren't sure what it was, although it looked very alien growing there. Then I spotted it beside the pond at Brodick Castle. I think it's skunk cabbage. It didn't seem to smell of skunks, but then again, I wasn't that close...

It's a great time of year in the castle gardens, with the rhododendrons and azaleas in flower.

I loved the magnolia too.


Busy bee.

The daffodils were also in full bloom.

Back in Lamlash and the sun was shining on Holy Isle.

A good time of year.
