More sunny days, lots of birds about, grass turning greener…could it be summer?
It has been a slow start this year but the countryside is looking beautiful. The weather seems to be improving.
We have had some foggy days but Knock castle looks spectacular wrapped in mist!
Our saplings have grown amazingly with many reaching a good two thirds up the tubes. Of the 115 saplings only two seem to be struggling.
The deer and the sheep are noticing our new shrubs and plants and we are trying some new ideas of discouraging them to have a go at these delights! One lamb got to our rockery and before you could say “Hoy!” a whole fern had gone down the hatch!
We have just put new links on our site for Walk Highlands, Isle of Skye.com, Visit Sleat and Visit Scotland. There is also a link to SEALL (Skye events for all).
Ours guests have seen seals and golden eagles in the vicinity and there have been reports in the paper of sea (white tailed) eagles at Kylerhea.
