|I loved the tartan floors. Apparently they are the family's colors.|
|We had a great view of the town and mountains!|
Moving on. Here are some pictures from the day we arrived in Pitlochry. We walked to the Pitlochry Dam to see it and the fish ladder. On the way, we crossed the River Tummel via a small suspension bridge. The bridge construction cost £850. Pretty cheap, eh? They previously crossed the River Tummel using a small ferry called the Port na Craig Ferry.
Anyway, the fish ladder! Fish ladders assist salmon and trout with their migrations up- and downstream during spawning and after hatching. Almost all of the males die after spawning... guess they die happy, eh? About 20% of the females live to return to the sea after spawning. This fish ladder had a fish counter to show how many swim through the ladder each year. It was pretty cool.

|Upstream from the dam. I love Scotland; the views are amazing.|
As we were walking around, we saw some cute ducks, an interesting sign advertising fish teas, and some very brightly colored plants.
|I learned that "fish tea" is fish soup! HAHA.|
|Check these out! Somebody please tell me what these are! So cool.|
