Autumn Colour

The weekend before last we were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding in the beautiful Scottish village of Craigellachie.  Autumn was in all its finery in this Highland village.

The name Craigellachie means ‘rocky hill’ and the town is situated where two rivers, the Spey and the Fiddich, meet.

Craigellachie dates back to at least 1750, when there was a ferry across the Spey below where the village stands.

Craigellachie is in the heart of whisky country and has not one, but two distilleries: the Macallan and the Craiellachie.

The weather generally was not good, and we arrived on the Friday night in pouring rain. Thankfully on the Saturday the sun came out occasionally and in time for some photos. We had a drive around the area before the wedding – the Autumn colours were spectacular.  I have not enhanced the colour in these photos, just changed the light levels slightly.

After the ceremony at the little village church, the storm clouds gathered again.

But all made it back to the hotel safely for a wonderful wedding reception.

We will definitely be going back to this place.
