"A Scottish Wind in the Willows on high end skunk."

"I enjoy Kate's stories..."
"A fun and spooky read..."

"The characters are so involving and
loveable that you do want them to really exist. It does read like you've
stumbled across someone's long lost diary from and alternate timeline/universe.
I quickly got into the story and loved every second of reading it...
total gem of a read by an author who deserves a lot more recognition."

Today's Walk - Hermitage to Rumbling Bridge

Half way between the two

Approaching Rumbling Bridge - spray from the waterfall looks like smoke

A rainbow appeared above the falls

I've blogged this one before (last February I think).  We didn't actually bother walking past the main Hermitage falls today because with it being a Sunday it was very busy - instead, we followed the quieter, upper path up river and then across the grassy half-mile-or-so expanse that leads to Rumbling Bridge.  It's very pleasant on a sunny day but it does get busy on weekends.  By busy, I mean you might pass a dozen or so people during your walk, if you head to Rumbling Bridge.  Round the Hermitage itself, it gets almost crowded.  They even have an ice-cream/burger van there in the summer season.
On a week day, however, you're very likely to have the place to yourself.
As I mentioned last year,  Rumbling Bridge is the site of Millais' painting The Sound of Many Waters, which is now on display, as far as I know, in Fyvie Castle.
Perthshire's a pretty good place for waterfalls.  I'd say Rumbling Bridge is one of the best - more spectacular than the more popular Hermitage, and well worth a visit if you like that kind of thing.
