Around Wester Ross


This is night No.10/2021 living in my caravan. This is our second night at Kinlochewe C&MC Site in Wester Ross.

Another great nights sleep and woke around 0645. It had been raining a lot through the night and was still showery when we got ready for our early morning jaunt around the next door NNR.

The cloud was covering the top of Slioch across the road. The weather did in fact improve quite a bit as the day wore on. The showers got lighter and even the sun made an appearance.

After breakfast, took the dogs a walk through the village to a gate I had spotted into a forest just outside Kinlochewe. 

Passed the rather ominous looking Church of Scotland.

The bridge across the river through Kinlochewe. The water is named A'Ghairbhe.

Arrived at the forest, but unfortunately there were no tracks or paths I could follow through the tumble of fallen trees! Still, it was the greenest forest I have ever seen. The whole place was coated in moss, testament to the purity of the air in these parts.

After lunch, with it still being a bit showery decided to take a short tour west in the car. Stopped to get the 'shortbread tin' picture of Slioch.

Remnants of the Caledonian Pine Forest.

This hill is A'Mhaidean, one of the Munros on the Fisherfield Six, and reputed to have the finest view from any summit in Scotland.

Stopped at a forestry track near the Victoria Falls to let the dogs have a run around.

Looking east down Loch Maree.

Continued on to Gairloch, then Melvaig.

The distant hills of Torridon.

It was quite hazy, but I think this is the north end of Skye, or could be Harris? Quite difficult to determine!

The sea state was very smooth. Would have been a great day to make a ferry crossing!
