Natural Connections

Modern life in Scotland is increasingly busy. The connections our ancestors had with nature and the land are being lost. As leisure time shrinks, or is filled with hi-tech experiences, opportunities to experience nature become fewer. And yet it is possible to connect with nature on a day to day basis. All around us, the great web of life continues to hold its shape, and nature continues its eternal cycles. Keep looking, listening, smelling, touching - and keep experiencing natural connections.

Wow this is absolutely gorgeous !

Are these places sanctuaries, or do they attract tourism during the high season ?

Hi Beaver,
thanks for your comment. I'm sitting at my pc at work just now, but it is nice to know someone is reading my blog on the other side of the world!

The places I mentioned in the blog are pretty much deserted all the year round. The beach attracts surfers and a few families, but only for a few weeks of the year. The Mull of Kintyre is 8 miles down a single-track road so most people don't go there.
A lot of Scotland is like that - you'd be surprised, although maybe not, as I guess a lot of Canada is pretty deserted too. I'm lucky that my work takes me to these places (or at least the roads that go past them) and I often get them to myself.
Best wishes
Stuart
