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.
