Sluggan Bridge

Thyme at Sluggan Bridge, River Dulnain, Strathspey.

After weeks of rain, a sunny day! It was lovely to lay in the grass, amongst patches of wild thyme, clover and herbs and feel the hot sun. The bees were busy enjoying it too.

Sluggan Bridge was part of the military road network built by General wade in 1729. The present bridge dates from the 1830’s.

It was extensively repaired in 2001 to become part of the national cycle network “off-road” route. Its always been a favourite area for me.

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognise: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist Monk.
