Bute. West Island Way.Arran Ridge.Scotland in Springtime.
An orange selfie. Being shy and retiring,the kind of selfie I prefer. Maybe I'll use different parts of my anatomy to create an identikit image of myself, as my personality is like that sometimes. "Call us legion, for we are many." This is Red Currant and Kerris Japonica (Batchelor's Buttons) in someone's garden.
As it was the sheer joy of spring again I fancied an island trip and Bute, for the moment, tends to be quieter than Arran as it is perceived, wrongly, to be free of outdoor adventure.
When I got back I was looking out of interest to see if I could find a GoPro film of the route and stumbled on this instead. A couple who also like the island. Natural presenters in front of a camera this couple could easily have a Scottish mini TV series along the lines of Tom Weir or Muriel Gray but their entertaining You Tube videos have had scant attention which is why I'm posting it on here. Usual story... it's not so much how good or talented you are but who you know and how much publicity you manage to create..Hope they don't mind me putting this on here but they have enthusiasm, sparkle and personality.( If they want it removed just leave a comment and I will remove it right away.)
