  1. That’s another wonderful picture Peter. I’m sure they get better and better. I love the quality of the light.

  2. This brings back memories of walking from the Druidale road to Killabregga and then down into the valley, which I did several times in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Such a poignant atmosphere at Kilabregga. I’ve not been back for a while but was sad to see that the last time I visited the cottages were noticeably more ruined than previously and that the large blocks of slate over the chimney breasts in some of the cottages had disappeared.
    We also used to walk into the plantation to the ruins of Sherach Vane Tholtan which is now overgrown with conifers. This featured in TE Moore’s poem Kitty of the Sherach (spelling?) Vane.
