Nybster is the 100th broch added to the library. It’s been quite a journey. I’ve glimpsed a little of how the Picts defeated the Romans, and I’ve grown to love their way of life. I’m beginning to suspect that the Picts were one of the original 12 tribes of Israel who emigrated to Scotland to get away from the Romans.
What a unique perspective of the Highlands the brochs trail offers, and what interesting people you meet. More info and free for personal use photos here
This was my first adventure of the year. It was pissing down first thing, and I almost didn’t go out. Drove through a blizzard on the high ground north of Helmsdale and almost turned around and went home. As soon as I approached Nybster, the clouds broke, the rain stopped and there was good light. I’ve around 30 images to work through before uploading them to the broch library, but had to share this one. Not bad for my first photo of the year! Well happy with it, and it was a great adventure to kick off 2017.
