The first time I heard about leaping salmon was many years back when watching National Geographic with my Dad - it is so intriguing watching the salmon fighting its way upstream to spawn and sadly to die as well. I also remember seeing physical changes to the salmon as it makes its way from the ocean to the spawning ground.
So, during my first Autumn in Dundee when I heard that there are a few spots in Scotland where we can watch leaping salmon, I was so excited but somehow I couldn't make it then.
Anyway, I finally managed to do so last Wednesday (Oct 26, 2011). And what an experience it was! Though there are are few spots throughout Scotland, we went to the closest to Dundee. It's at Buchanty Spout somewhere not far from Crieff (What a lovely town it is!). I think it is one of the best kept secret Perthshire ever have. I am still very tired of the journey as such, do enjoy the photos.

It's an awesome view, trust me!

Till then - Enjoy your weekends :-D
