Equinox Among Some Scottish Stones

Vernal Equinox 2014 was on 20th March, at just before 5 pm, our GMT time. We were travelling between Aberdeen Airport and Nairn, and being a delightful sunny afternoon decided to visit some ancient stones on the way.

First stop, the Brandbutt Stone at Inverurie a few miles from Aberdeen. I took a few pics to perhaps add to those I am using in Ogma's Tale Of The Trees art.

From here along a country road to the vilage of Daviot and north of there are the Loanhead stone circles, and we got to those at the point of Vernal Equinox at 4:57 pm, GMT, so here's a few pics from there ...

After pondering awhile here we left to see if we could get to one or two more nearby sites before it was dark ....

Alas, Claire pointed out that the rear of the rented car was melting ...

and it took a few hours to communicate this and sort out with the car rental company.

Eventually, we did get on the road to Nairn to get to the hotel and prepare for upcoming adventures :-)
