The A894 to Drumbeg, Scotland. Definitely one of the UK’s most scenic roads.

I didn’t think it ethical to shoot or publish this, but I am easily persuaded. Click image to enlarge. Ullapool harbour, after the ride.

Knockdamph Bothy, Loch an Daimh, Ullapool. This bothy has recently been renovated. Indeed, when we visited it featured dry matches and lighters, peat bricks, fresh water, a kettle, but most unusually 2 beds and a 1/3 bottle of Southern Comfort.

Libby and Alison found the in-track waters deeper than expected.

Top; Deer corpses, Glencapisp hunting Lodge, Lochinver, Scotland, middle; walker on the lower summit of Suilven.

Over the years I have developed the rather foolish habit of running down most of hills I find myself summiting. Its great fun and very quick getting down, but I suspect it’s not going to be great for the longevity of my knees. In this case though, it left plenty of time for a wee dip in the lock at the base of Sullivan followed by a sand castle building session. I love to imagine how harsh the winter winds have been over the thousands of years it’s taken to make beaches on these inland locks.
