The Scottish winter is refusing to materialise. This weekend I should have been in the Southern Highlands photographing backcountry skiing, but the location is yet to get a covering of snow. Which meant I had a spare couple of days, which is actually much appreciated after the chaotic last few weeks.
So, missing the sea air, we headed down to the Moray village of Cullen for a walk along the dramatic beach. The wind blew a breath of a houley and rain threatened every few minutes. This is a location I’ve been looking forward to visiting since relocating to the Highlands. Despite the weather today, it was worth battling along the cliff top, to see this incredible feature, the Bow Fiddle Rock.
Bow Fiddle Rock is a natural sea arch near Portknockie on the north-eastern coast of Scotland. It is so called because it resembles the tip of a fiddle bow. Today there was a nice swell running around the rock as hundreds of seabirds circled in the air above.
