A beautiful trail through Cambo Estate in Kingsbarns, Scotland in early March. Cambo Estate, just a few minutes’ drive from St Andrews, is famous in this eastern coast of the Kingdom of Fife for its national collection of snowdrop flowers. I took my children there on a rather dreary and chilly day but our walk was worth it for the view. This path leads onto a beach, which is part of the well-known Kingsbarns golf course.
Here on the east coast of Scotland, in the town of St Andrews in particular, we don’t get much snow at all. If it does snow, it is just a dusting that seems to melt instantaneously. I love snow and miss it very much, being from the Boston area in New England, USA. A couple weekends ago, I took my kids to a nearby mansion & 70 acre estate called Cambo Estate. It has a national collection of snow drop flowers. I was curious to see what the fuss was about. On this raw February day, we strolled down the wooded path and enjoyed these delicate beauties, snow or no snow. I’m not sure how this year’s blooms compared to other years but it was certainly beautiful.
On my recent trip to the Scottish Highlands, I took this shot of the Glencoe area. The tops of the mountains were hidden in mist and there was a chilly drizzle, as you may expect. The stream was as clear as glass. The glens and hills of the Highlands are mysterious and awe-inspiring. Will definitely visit the area again.
