Today marked an adverse change in weather.

We departed our Dunkeld lodgings for Amulree and then embarked on a drive through Glen Quaich but heavy fog resulted in negligible visibility despite which we were able to observe a number of unusual birds: Quail, Red Grouse, Pheasant and a Hawk (or similar bird of prey).

We availed of refreshment upon arriving Kenmore then went to the nearby Crannog Centre where we joined a tour of the re-created Iron-Age home from about 2500 years ago supplemented by craft and other techniques of the period.

After lunch at Kenmore we visited the nearby stone circle known as Croft Moraig ( Mary’s Farm) and then ventured on another back roads trip, this time through Glen Lyon which brought us into Fortingall and its 5000 year-old yew tree.
