Dunkeld Bridge and the River Tay

Bridge over Tay at Dunkeld

We parked the car at the Loch of the Lowes, intending to go for a good long walk around the loch, but it turned out that you can’t do that. We ended up walking to Dunkeld from there, which was a first for us. We thought that we were never going to get to the town, it seemed a lot further away than the signposts stated, I think they must have been country miles!

Anyway, by the time we got to Dunkeld we were pretty tired and didn’t feel up to doing our usual river walk along the ‘silveryTay’, so we just had a sit down by the cathedral and had a bit of a rest before making the very steep climb over the hill to the car park at the Loch of the Lowes again. We didn’t see any birds flying about at all, never mind ospreys, just loads of bird-watchers.

As usual we had great intentions of going further north but never did get around to it during the two week long spring holiday, which went past in a flash. Never mind, this coming Good Friday is another holiday and then there’s the royal wedding holiday, then the May Bank holiday and just to make things even weirder, the Easter weather forecast is really good. How rare is that!
