Glen Tilt Sheep

We walked through Glen Tilt today (about 6 miles we think) just north of Blair Atholl. It was an adventure in map reading, trespassing, and hiking over and around enormous downed trees.

Even when we pad as quietly as we can with a chatty 4 1/2 year old, the sheep run away from us… except for this one who was as curious about us as we were about her.

More photos and the story tomorrow. I need to close my eyes and count some sheep. Probably one ought to do it.
