Great photos Neil, do you live by Knockquassen?

Hi Valerie, my partner Liz and I moved in to Knockquhassen Farm at the beginning of December. We previously lived near Bristol. We are gradually knocking the land into shape for Liz's 3 horses.

Welcome Neil, thought that might be where you were from your photos and had seen it was for sale. Fanastic spot for photography. We moved up here to the N Rhins in 2006 and love it.
