A VIEW FROM THE NEWTON GARRY CLIMBING LANE LAY BY

The Newton Garry climbing lane was installed to improve the flow of
traffic on the A96 up the long haul south of Huntly. The view from the
lay by is outstanding, and on a clear day you can see an exceptional
distance. Some interesting points in the picture. Check the traffic
climbing the A96 on the extreme left of the picture. In the far distance
around picture centre is Aberchirder or 'Foggieloan' as it is known locally.
More obvious in the full size picture but not so obvious on the smaller
size picture on this slightly murky day. Full size picture HERE

THE CROMARTY FIRTH AND THE CROMARTY BRIDGE

This panorama is a composition of 41 separate pictures all stitched together in an
operation which took some considerable time to assemble. The Firth forms one
of the safest and most commodious anchorages in the North of Scotland and
Invergordon, at the North end, was once a major base for the Royal Navy's
Home Fleet. The Cromarty Bridge, basically a causeway, forms part of the A9
leading north.
