Scotland hols

Ardnamurchan peninsular.   Eagles, single track roads, peace, quiet, stunning scenery, lochs, glens, mountains, solitude, a million midges, no hassle.

Our most crazy ‘sighting’ was on our first full day when, upon pulling into a layby in the middle of nowhere Lincolnshire’s very own Simon and Karen Spavin got out of the car in front! Turns out they were staying just a mile from us.

Our cottage reminded us of that place in Skyfall, it was that remote. From the garden and tracks we saw white-tailed eagles, ospreys carrying fish, hen harrier, merlin, crossbills and lots of commoner species. A pine marten kept nicking our peanut butter bait at night, but it was only seen once.P1060028P1050988P1050999P1060040P1060065P1060035P1060108P1060122P1060118P1060048P1060090P1060075P1060068P1060081P1060107P1060091P1060084P1060104

  1. Brilliant, love that scenery. Once stayed in the Strontian supporting two friends doing the Ardnamurchan to Lowestoft bike ride, two Cuckoos calling outside my window from around 2am!
