Photographer's Note

On our first full day in Scotland recently we walked from the village of Moulin near Pitlochry up to the top of Craigower Hill. Craigower translates as Goat痴 Crag and is looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. From the top on a clear day there are stunning views over Loch Fiskally looking south and Loch Tummel looking west.

It was one of those days when rain threatened and the views were hazy. However, on the way back, about 10 minutes away from the village, the sun made a brief appearance resulting in a rainbow over Baledmund Castle. It痴 the first time I have had my camera at the ready when there was a rainbow.

I managed to get four shots before it disappeared and couldn稚 decide between two which to post. I think this one has the best composition because of the position of the castle and the line of foreground trees, but the rainbow is better in the one in the WS.

Incidentally, if you have 」2750 to spare you can rent the castle for the weekend. ;D

I知 not too confidant about the map co-ordinates as there isn稚 a close enough zoom of the area, but if you zoom out you can see roughly how to get there.
