Did a bit more exploration of the Highlands this morning and went out for a run in the direction of Achnasheen. It was about a 100 mile round trip and Achnasheen is about two thirds of the distance from where I live to the west coast.
I had noticed a string of Lochs running in that direction, and was interested to see if I could get close to the water's edge. Some were inaccessible due to train tracks or private roads, but there were laybyes at a couple of them. Here are a few pics of what I found.
NOTE: Don't ask me how to pronounce the names, as I have no idea how to pronounce Gaelic words.


The first twoare at Loch a'Chuilinn



Here is a wider shot of just the Loch.



These two are of Loch a'Chroisg.



The Loch without the car.

As always George, great photographs


I for one thoroughly enjoy looking at the beautiful scenery that is on your step (relatively).


I suppose that I could upload some images of Strathclyde Park but I don't have a "lens" that would filter out the colour "green".



No not to filter out the acres of green grass in the park but to remove the awful looking green algae in the water and the "Buckie" (Buckfast Wine) bottles that seem to just float and bob along with the current.

The last time I filled up at Tesco in Dingwall,Diesel was £1.35 per litre. Think it has got a bit dearer in the last couple of weeks. I'll be filling up later this morning, so I'll post what the current price is later. If you go away from the towns though it is likely to be a good bit dearer than what I'm paying for it.

It's been a while sinceI visited Fort William and Skye. They are just about at the limit of my driving endurance. When I first moved up to this end of the country, I seriously considered buying a house on Skye, but I ended up thinking it was just too far away from civilisation.

There are plenty of birds up here, but my car is garaged when not in use. I have an automatic door on my garage, so I just press the button as a drive through the gate, and go straight into the garage. So don't get much bird crap on the car. Worst place for bird crap is when I go to the local Morrisons in Alness. There's a Rookery in the trees next to the car park, and I've had a few bombs dropped on my cars over the years.

As for the car looking nice and clean, I only have the local drive through car wash to thank for that. I'm not really fit enough, and don't have the inclination, to do a Grumps on it.


Edit:

Just filled up this morning at Tesco in Dingwall, and the diesel was 136.9 pence per litre.
