Just looking back at old photos, I came across this one that needed brightening up, the original was well underexposed, it came out ok apart from the eyes. It's from a camping trip to Inchconnachan on Loch Lomond 11 years ago.
As far as I'm aware, the wallabies are still there.

We had a wander out to Yellowcraig beach yesterday, to take advantage of the slightly better weather but it was still quite windy.

Having fun with Blender. I'm recreating my office and I now have a virtual office in a virtual office...

We had a walk round Muiravonside Country Park this morning and out to the Avon Aqueduct.

I was startled by a frog in the garden so we put a shallow dish of water out for it. Half an hour later and it's made itself at home.

We came across a few pheasants on the route that weren't to bothered by us even though we had a dog. There were also a lot of red admiral butterflies and a heron on one section. We kept disturbing the heron and it would fly up the burn we were following until it decided that it was going to back to where we first saw it.

We walked the John Buchan way yesterday. It was a pleasant walk through the rolling hills of the Borders from Peebles to Broughton.

There was a bit of low cloud over the Firth of Forth this morning.

We found a new path in the Pentland Hills near Torduff reservoir. It gives a nice view of Edinburgh with the castle in the middle.

Some of the huts are used by the local community. This was obviously a bike shed.

While walking the Scottish National Trail we've passed places that we thought were worth visiting, so we did on Sunday when we went round Cultybraggan Camp.
Named PoW camp No 21, built in 1941 to house 4,000 Category A prisoners, Cultybraggan was a 'black camp', holding those considered the most committed and fanatical Nazi PoWs, mainly young Waffen-SS, Fallschirmjäger and U-boat crew.

We have a few wood pigeons that come into our garden, this is the first time I think I've seen one sunbathing on the lawn.

Sunset on Tatooine? No, just a time-lapse through double glazing.

We took the dog down to Belhaven beach today. She had a good run and is tired now.

This was the view back up the Tay valley as we crossed the only hill on the route.

We completed another stage of the Scottish National Trail at the weekend, Aberfeldy to Pitlochry. At Little Ballinluig we saw some sand martins nesting in a bank of earth. Is it still called a nest if it's a hole in the ground?
