Spring in the beautiful Highlands!

Spring has well and truly arrived in the Highlands, as these pictures taken yesterday show.

Richard Jones of Moyness House left Inverness at 6.30 in the morning to ride the Iron Butt Association of America‘s Saddlesore 1000 certified 1000 miles in 24 hours motorcycle ride (he got back to Inverness at 2.30 am, 20 hours later!) He couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful day on which to embark on such a lunatic venture! (He was successful and now awaits the all important certificate).

Richard got some great shots of beautiful Highland scenery bathed in sunshine.
