I've been coming to Brodie for the past 20 years and never get fed up of it. The castle isn't open at this time of year but the grounds are and apart from a family with very young kiddies and an older couple with a dog we didn't see anyone.
After nearly freezing our butts off last December we went prepared with hats, scarves and gloves and boy did we need them. The pond already has a thin layer if ice on it and it was very cold in the shade. I tried to walk back in the sun, what little there was of it.
Here's two of my boys making the last of the "nice" weather. Poor Moss is losing his hair again and will be bald if the vet can't sort him out soon.
