The Green of Scotland




One of the greenest and most beautiful sights I’ve seen is the Scottish hills and mountains in summer when the sun breaks through the thick cloud cover. This green was so bright, rich and velvety it hurt my eyes to look at it. I haven’t seen any place in the US with green vegetation of this intensity and shade.



I’m still in Scotland today, but likely the hills and mountains of the Highlands are not quite as green in the fall. I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures so I can show you when I return. This time we are driving ourselves, so if I see breathtaking scenery or landscape, I can slam on the brakes, get out and take pictures. :)
Where are your favorite green spots in nature?

    Great pictures. I have a picture of Glencoe on my website, so that gives you a good idea of the scenery I like. lol Ireland, of course, is also very green. Hope you're having a great time.

    The last time I was in the Scottish Highlands it was October and cold, but as you said the green in incredible. Ireland is the same way, so deeply green and lush it makes the heart sing.
