postcards from scotland #7
we made our way to applecross, a little town on the western shore of the highlands. a little jewel with it's mystic woodlands, all covered with moss and lichen of many different kinds (over 20 species). i'm not a scientist, but i can see and appreciate the beauty of this landscape and plant diversity. wild deer were spotted on our walk as well as birds.
the walled garden was our "eating out" destination. of course, we planned the walk, and were aware, that it will take us a while discovering all the above. upon arriving at the walled garden, and looking at the beauty of this really neat place, we enjoyed a wonderful early dinner at the potting shed cafe&restaurant. a perfect, place to reward all of us with a yummy meal and great atmosphere.
