Summer Solstice marks the point of the year when the earth is tilted at its closest point to the sun. A feast time also for the local midges, as our intrepid photographer will testify to!
At this time of year young red squirrels are about. Please keep your speed down and watch out for them on the roads around Ardentinny.
We think this is a male ring-necked pheasant on the Ardentinny shoreline. He’d just finished quenching his thirst from Loch Long on this warm summer evening.
Stalwart of Ardentinny’s arts and crafts scene for the past 16 years, bowler, dancer, bridge player, gardener and outdoor enthusiast, Jean Grimes leaves her many Ardentinny friends next week for pastures new. An accomplished artist, Jean is pictured here with one of her most recent canvases.
On behalf of the village, we wish her continued good health and happiness. Come back and visit us often!
