It was a bright, crisp winter’s day as a drove back from Peterhead. The sun was catching the colours of Buchanness Lighthouse, making it stand out against the bright blue sea and the cloudless sky. The storms of yesterday were past. I had a few minutes spare, so the dogs and I went for a little walk in Boddam down to the stone bench carefully placed on the cliff top to give the best view of the lighthouse. It’s not a long walk, very short, actually, but Lily and Poppy enjoyed the scamper through he grass, stopping for the occasional sniff.
I was able to persuade the dogs up onto the bench and captured one or two pictures of them in the sunshine. I wish I had taken another lens with me so that I would have squeezed in the lighthouse in the background – but you can’t have everything!
Thank you to those who positioned this bench and organised the cutting of the grass path to make it a lovely little walk to the viewpoint. I suspect it is the Boddam Community Association who have also now organised a network of paths on Stirling Hill.
