It is easy to forget the natural beauty that surrounds us during the challenging and uncertain times that we currently find ourselves in.

This year’s spring equinox was last Friday, on March 20, and already the signs of a new season are sprouting up around us.

Lambs being born, buds shooting out from trees and spring flowers blossoming are welcome reminders that life goes on.

Here are a few of the spring sights that have been seen within walking distance of the Courier’s home-office.

We’d love to share some of the sights which have made our readers smile in recent days and weeks. Please send your photographs to editor@campbeltowncourier.co.uk or via Facebook messages.
