A trip to Aberfeldy

At the beginning of March I had a mini holiday in Aberfeldy with Tam and his family.  It was nice to get away for a few days of walking and exploring somewhere new, despite the freezing weather (I ran down a hill in heavy sleet, it was oddly fun).  We found what is said to be Europe's oldest tree which was...not unlike a lot of other trees from where I was standing...but the church yard was very pretty ;)  There was also a fab old cinema where Tam's brother and I saw The Lego Movie and did a lot of singing afterwards...
We also realised we were near a place called Dull, which was very exciting and turned us into embarrassing tourists.  (Remember Wetwang?)
Parsnip obviously had a blast with all the walking involved...
We stayed in a gorgeous cottage a mile or so outside Aberfeldy (here, if anyone's interested).  I'd definitely like another trip up there soon, we have so much of Scotland left to explore!

  2. Love that cinema - especially the non-allocated seating and the allowance of a glass of wine whilst watching!
    Glad you had a great time!
