The heather on the surrouding hillside is a sight to be seen. When the sunshine beats down it gives off a sheen. The vibrant purple is iconic to Scotland but heather is not in bloom all year round (a common misconception with tourists). We wait patiently for the bloom come August each year. Our inspiration come from many hill walks and shooting days in the pillowy heather. Here is our 2020 edit below.
Moss is in abundance on our daily dog walk down to the River Beauly. It is fascinating the way it beards branches. Light as air to touch and ever changing in colour according to the weather. We have taken inspiration from its wise grey and green tones, it has hugely infuenced our buying decisions and here is our edit for 2020.
We are lucky to live in such beautiful surroundings in the Highlands of Scotland and the colours of the countryside in bloom which are a great inspiration to us. At this time of year wild gorse has a tangy yellow glow in the spring sunshine. It also smells amazing. The vibrant yellow of the gorse bush has influenced our buying decisions hugely and here is our edit for 2020.
