Ardnamurchan

A few weeks ago we decided to go to Ardnamurchan for a weekend of wild camping. I love the fact that in Scotland, you can pitch your tent pretty much anywhere you like. What a great way to experience this amazing country!

We had never been to the edge of the Ardnamurchan peninsula before, and I have to say the long drive was worth it! Loch Sunart in particular, must be one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in Scotland so far.

Here are some of the snaps from the weekend. I loved the scene with the Highland cows in the water. Only wish I’d had a more powerful zoom that moment! The little Jack Russell in the vintage car also made me smile. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

….it’s here!

…my brand new 50mm 1.8 lens arrived two days ago. Haven’t had a chance to really put it to the test yet, but I love it already!

Of castles, lochs, and steam trains….

So it’s official, July 2013 was the second warmest July on records in Scotland. Because of all the good weather I have been spending most of my weekends away camping and exploring the Scottish countryside. Here are some pictures I took back in June when I took visitors from the US to Fort William, Oban, Loch Fyne and the Kyles of Bute.

I love the picture of the seagull at the pier, for which I had to be fairly quick. My favourite has to be the the picture of the entrance door to Ballimore House though, which makes you think of all the people who might have walked through that door over the years. Let me know what you think, and if you have any favourites.
