Shillingford Bridge Oxfordshire August 30th 2013

A few days in Oxfordshire, all these photos were taken in the grounds of the Shillingford Bridge Hotel and the river is the River Thames. The boathouse was on the other bank access across the bridge heading towards the village of Shillingford, which is about 12 to 14 miles from the City of Oxford. The pool although cold was refreshing and yes I did go in for a swim. The next set of photos are within the City of Oxford itself .

Glen Affric Plodder Falls and River Affic and the River River Glass June 2013

Our last day in the Highlands of Scotland

The first 6 photos were taken at the Plodder Falls in Glen Affric one of the most beautiful Glens in the Highlands. The drive to the falls is very dusty, also a long steep walk down to the main falls, so all my photos are from the top. 

On the other side of the Glen the last 5 were taken of The River Glass, further up river it is called The River Affric both can be reached from the village of Cannich which is on the A831.
