Wordless Wednesday……. A Favourite Place

Mull

They say that it is “Better to Travel than to Arrive”……..  well I guess I know what they mean, the journey is all important. Sometime a pause on route is a real bonus.

The image above is of The Isle of Mull, a very favourite place of ours.  Mull is an island of the North West Coast of Scotland, only a short Ferry ride away, but it is like embarking on an adventure to a very distance land.

But where the photograph was taken from is equally as important to us.  Ledaig Beach, just north of Oban.  We always spend some days here before.  Those days build the magic of both the moment and the destination.

Glad to be here, yet full of anticipation of what is to come.

What ever lies ahead of us all…..

October in the Highlands

Loch Maree, Torridon, Scotland

Winter had still to arrive in this part of North West Scotland so we were still enjoying some rather grand weather in the mountains in mid October.  The heather had long gone, bracken browning and the surrounds still rather lush.

Tourist had all but vanished so we enjoyed a peaceful tour allowing us to pause at will in locations like this.

Expansive views along Loch Maree with the mighty Slioch, touched by cloud, on the edge of the Torridon Range and the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve.

Found memories of some magical Scottish October days…

A Rocky Outlook……………

Scotland

The dramatic Kilt Rock Waterfall.  The name Kilt is derived from the columns formed in the cliffs and thought to resemble the pleats in a Highland Kilt.    The waters for the falls come from nearby Loch Mealt at Ellishadder, near Staffin on the North East tip of the Isle of Skye.  North West Scotland.  Also a reminder of a rare day of sunshine across the Hebridean Islands.
