Here in Scotland the bluebell season is at its peak around mid-May.  Drifts shimmer on the woodland floor, filling the air with a beautiful scent.   Swathes of azure blue spread across hillsides, and as you stand in silent wonder you might well hear a cuckoo calling from up in the glen.

These are some of our favourite photos of bluebells, mostly taken in Argyll and Lochaber.
