A confession..after the early to bed and and early (5.00am) start to to the transfer day, I realised most of the way towards the ferry that my camera battery charger was still plugged in North Uist, whoops!
Trying to source a new one as we drove down the Isle of Skye was fruitless, I tried switching my laptop on at a free wifi point, that was dead too:-(( I knew all my photos were safe though, good backup strategy is vital!
Our cottage for the week.........http://www.lochtorridon.co.uk/index.htm
Craig Cottage in a beautiful sheltered bay on the Applecross peninsula, to the north on Loch Torridon.
Unpacked and tired we settled down with a glass of something tasty, we soon had a taste of what the week would offer..
On Sunday we ventured up a small hill, A Bairol is its name and it rises a stately 175m from sea level..
And a rare view of us too:-))
Later in the day we had quite a special visitor again on the decking...
The next day we had a drive round to iconic village of Applecross, with the number of tourists here maybe because of the name we had an immediate dislike, but we found a short walk that yielded a part fossilized tree..
And a nice river view...
The siskins on the feeders kept eluding me:-((
And then a wonderful otter spot in nearby bay....
And our friend the wood mouse kept us entertained:-))
Beinn Alligin looked superb..
What a great start to our last day, a short drive and we found a lovely close look at a razorbill..
And a hunting heron with a prize..
