Scotland in Autumn
Scotland in autumn is a wonderful place. The air is cool and fresh, the colors are vivid. The grass is still bright green in many places, but the trees are also turning. Here are some photos I took at Crathes Castle one October.

The below photos are from the Fyvie Castle gardens the same day.

Gwyneth Carswell, an English lady banished by her father to the harsh Scottish Highlands, wants nothing more than to take her young son away from the violence of two fighting clans--her own distant kin, the MacIrwins, and their enemies, the MacGraths. She risks everything to rescue the fierce MacGrath warrior from the battlefield where he’s left for dead by her clan. She only knows she is inexplicably drawn to him and he wants peace as she does. When her clan learns of her betrayal, they seek vengeance. Dare she trust the enemy more than her own family? 

Laird Alasdair MacGrath is driven to end two-hundred years of feuding with the MacIrwins. But by taking in and protecting Lady Gwyneth and her son, he provokes more attacks from his mortal enemy. As the danger and conflict surrounding them escalate, Alasdair and Gwyneth discover an explosive passion neither of them expected. With the arrival of a powerful man from her past, a horrible decision confronts her--give up her son or the man she loves.

  1. Thank you for always sharing your beautiful pictures! These were amazing! Some of the colors on the trees were magnificent! I loved the gardens too! Lovely! Thank you so much!

  2. Thank you for checking it out, Tracey! So glad you liked them!

  3. Oh Vonda, these photos are superb. When we were in Scotland it was October so we also had the joy of seeing the fall colors. Loved all those photos, espcially the one where you can see the rocks in the forground and it looks right up into the peak. Stunning.

    I might add that being here in Wisconsin for the first time for fall colors has blown me away. I have never seen such beauty in leaves and trees before.


  4. How beautiful! I would love to visit Scotland one day. Fall is my favorite season. It appears to be even more beautiful over there based on your pictures.

  6. Thank you, Paisley! Late Sept. or October is a really nice time to go to Scotland. It isn't as crowded. The colors are pretty. I bet Wisconsin is beautiful. Glad you're enjoying it. Hugs!!!

  7. Mary Ellen, hope you will visit Scotland. You'll love it.

    Loved the photos, Vonda! Wish I were there! Especially liked the one with the cattle and the house in the background.

  14. Thanks, Gwyn! I wish I were there too. Right after I took that cattle picture a dog chased me. LOL

  15. Perfectly delightful pictures. Thank you for sharing. No wonder the Highlanders didn't want to give it up!

    Hello Vonda.
