Orkney to Glasgow

This afternoon I am posting a collection of images recording my recent return trip from Orkney (off Scotland's northern tip) to Glasgow in the south west of Scotland. Overall transfer time was about nine hours.

With exception of image no 1 (taken from the ferry) all the images were taken from a moving/static train with a cellphone.

Hopefully, the contents of this post will provide the reader with an appreciation for some of the more remote parts of Scotland well away from the tourist trails.

 Duke of Sutherland Monument near Golspie

Whisky warehouses at Glenmorangie Distillery. The black external covering is due to a harmless fungus which lives on the evaporating alcohol.

Resting oil rig near Invergordon. This is actually held in a large body of water known as the Cromarty Firth.

Lawn bowls facility adjacent to Invergordon Rail Station.

Landscape somewhere near Dalwhinnie.

This was certainly a memorable trip facilitated by reasonable weather and smooth running transport links.
