This is Leanach Farmhouse in Scotland. At years old its wonderful history is told by the stones, clay and oak that have kept it standing for so many centuries. In this picture the beautiful cottage is getting a new haircut of a red heather thatch.
This is Crovie (pronounced Crivie) on the Moray Coast of Scotland. It's far more beautiful than it's more famous neighbouring town Pennan (from Local Hero). When the sea is rough it takes a hell of a battering from the waves.
