The calm of the Loch

So it’s been a few weeks since I last posted, I’ve unfortunately been somewhat in the proverbial black hole for the last wee while. While I won’t go into the details here, suffice to say it’s not been the most pleasant or enjoyable last few weeks nor the most calm or stress-free!

I did manage to disappear home to my village in Scotland for a quick weekend respite from it all at one point however and thought I’d share a couple of pictures that I took of the serene, calm loch at the foot of our village while I was there. The snow dusted hill in the background is the hill that our village perches at the bottom of. I saved these as a wallpaper on my phone and everytime I felt stressed or frustrated recently, I’d take a quick look and the picture would instantly transport me back to a place where I always feel calm and happy.

I’ve still to catch up on all my favourite blogs, so I think I’ll take some time now to sit here in my battered wooden rocking chair in the window with my hot steaming mug of tea to catch up on what you’ve all been up to. πŸ™‚

  1. sometimes you need to go home just to recharge the batteries and gain a sense of who you are

  2. Hope you’re on the up over there. Love the images. πŸ™‚

  3. Stunning! Argh, I so need some of that. I’ve only got as far Lakeland and that was invigorating and stunning beyond my imagination. Those photos are stunning. I wish to find myself seated calmly by those amazing views one day. There is something about a vast, still body of water that is immensely soothing to the soul. Thank you for sharing your photos.

    • There really is, just being close to any kind of water makes you feel more connected to nature and helps remind you of The Bigger Picture! It’s so easy to get caught up and bogged down in the small stuff sometimes.
