Short little holiday at Bridge of Cally

As the nice weather continues we decided to make good use of the nights Bed and Breakfast we won at The Bridge of Cally Hotel so as I had a full weekend off we set out on the 40 minute journey to Bridge of Cally. After check in to a lovely room with a huge bed we set off to drive across the Moulin Moor to Pitlochry so we could have a look round and a walk.

The sky was blue and the sun was breaking through as we took a walk through Pitlochry, over the swing bridge and up to the Fish ladder at the Dam

Roscoe happier on the swing bridge than I was!

The river at the Power station

After our walk it was a hard earned ice - cream

Back to the hotel where we had a lovely steak dinner and wine and Roscoe was allowed to  sit in the bar area with us as we ate, he behaved beautifully and was happy to make friends with anyone who would speak to him!! Including several people walking the Cateran Trail - a lovely trail that takes 3 - 5 days to complete and takes in some lovely scenery

The Cateran Trail is far too long for Roscoe (and me LOL) but our morning walk we walked along part of it so we can say we have been on the trail

Our break was over  too quickly but before heading home we turned North and took a drive up Glenshee past the ski slopes and down the other side into Braemar where we had another wander and headed out to the forest beside the Linn of Dee. Sadly my phone died at this point so the only photo I got was the river in Braemar!
A lovely break was had by all and I think it is safe to say Roscoe enjoys his travels with us :-)

A lovely summer's day out at Kenmore

Summer has been here to stay and we have made the most of long sunny days.

Following our lovely day out at St Andrews we headed North and West the last weekend in July to Kenmore. We left an overcast and cloudy home and drove off to wards the sun and blue skies

We had a wander round the village and along by the river then we had lunch at the Kenmore hotel. Dogs are allowed in one of the bars where food is served but it was such a lovely day we opted to sit at the tables out the back over looking the river and the ducks. Roscoe as usual was oblivious to the ducks and other dogs and lay quietly in the sun.

After lunch we headed back to the small beach area and had great fun paddling, Roscoe seems to really like the water.

Here is the view from where we ate lunch

And here is Roscoe enjoying cooling off in Loch Tay
