Wordless Wednesday…… Another Favourite Place

Big Ben

Location:-   Corpach, with Ben Nevis, North West Scotland

No excuses for revisiting one of my favourite Scottish views. Corpach was once a very busy seaway location. Located where the waters of Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil meet, it is also the start of the Caledonian Canal that cuts through the Great Glen, so linking the west coast to the east coast…. a vital time saving and safe route for Fishing and Supply shipping,  It is also where you get great views of Ben Nevis. (on a clear day that is!)

Wordless Wednesday….. Another Favourite Place

Hardwick-Hall

Location:- Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire

We are lucky in Derbyshire, that many of our ancestors chose to build their grand homes within the county. Indeed we are spoilt for choice….. But Hardwick, is I reckon, my favourite.
