The journey home

It was a brief visit to Wester Ross, but a colourful one.  The autumn hues were intense and rich. The journey home was punctuated by a couple of stops to take photos of a small loch in the middle of nowhere, and later, to take a short walk with Tilly, who was a complete star, by the way.  She spent a lot of time in the car with us, but behaved herself immaculately!
I love the colours across this expanse of water.  The overall effect reminds me of a Monet painting!
We always enjoy a drive alongside the loch at Kishorn.  This view looks across to the zig zag single track road that winds its way up and over the Pass of the Cattle, the Bealach Na Bar.  It is not a route for the faint hearted.  We didn't drive that way during this visit, because we were staying a bit further along Loch Torridon, but it is a spectacular route.
We stopped by the Rogie Falls, near Inverness, and Tilly and I had a wander down the path leading to the waterfalls.  It was a colourful and sunny little interlude, and a good way to round off a lovely couple of days, before embarking on the long drive back down the A9!


  1. Have so enjoyed following the return to Applecross; it has brought back many happy memories, especially of Sand Beach and Coral Beach, Patterns of Light at Kishorn, of November sunshine and happy dogs, and - above all - the company of dear friends. (Oh and a yummy butternut squash, feta and walnut bake - made many times since here in Devon.)

    A tiny copper hare from Patterns of Light still rests against one of the window panes in the kitchen - my kitchen deity. Her name is Cerridwen, after the Celtic goddess with whom the hare is associated . . .

  2. Applecross always manages to create wonderful memories! We return to old haunts, and there is always something new to enjoy! Love it! x
