Winter Strolling By Surprise – Rothbury

Rothbury_pano_small

Here I was, a quick trip up to Rothbury, Northumberland. Behold, the temperature dropped, the snow began to fall and my car… well… the car decided to give up on me. Quite frankly it is not a bad place to get stuck at all. Being a weekend the mechanic at the local garage despite his fantastic efforts could not get me back on the road until the new week ahead so there was nothing else for it… Get the boots out of the bag and get out on foot. Over the local hills, white underfoot, blue overhead. Perfect, my favourite hiking conditions as those that know me will tell you.

Firstly I must thank the ever so friendly people of Rothbury that without hesitation came to the rescue to help take away the stress of the mobility situation. I actually do not feel stuck but rather now on a lovely break. Thank you all and more whom are not online. @LinhopeHouse @HarleysTea @NorthumberArt @PottedHistory @MistyPalace

Where did I wander? Well of course Rothbury is located perfect for wandering from direct. Treelined hills and crags in all directions. Cragside and the house was a must, the lake frozen with lovely reflections. And up above Rothbury on the terraces gave a whole beautiful perspective. Green valleys, white hilltops and clear blue skies. The Cheviot hills standing proud in the distance….. Perfect!

    Love the tree and sheep Paul! And the lightly snow covered path with trees. Feels like winter! Snow does inspire writing. Glad you turn lemons into lemon aid on this trip and enjoy the views! ~cheers Orly

  2. It surely is a great place to get stuck. I can remember getting the shovel out of the boot one year in that locality, with our baby son curled up oblivious in the back- ah, memories. He's a bulky 6'4" now! Beautiful photos. Merry Christmas to you!
