Thanks for all the lovely wishes. I don't know where the week has gone & I haven't got back to everybody yet, but get back I will!
So here are the rest of the pics from our trip out to Inverie for our
celebration lunch. I'm warning you, it's picture heavy - I used the
alphabet to 'number' this weeks pics & had to use z twice ;)
From Mallaig on the mainland we took the lifeline ferry - above is heading into Loch Nevis
a gannet, they just won't come closer!
people think I'm remote - this is remote!
A statue of Our Lady
Looking back one we'd arrived - you can just see the ferry i the gap
local kids work
the 'assemblage' outside the resteraunt
First we went for a walk - didn't expect to see a peacock!
Inverie at Knoydart is only accessible by boat - if you were to walk in from Mallaig to the right or Corran (I think from the left it would take at least 2 days (if you were fit!) coz of the length of the lochs. So all the cars here have been landcrafted in. 75 % of them are landrovers we I mean he counted at least 23 ;) We felt right at home.
We walked along the road to the Kilchoan Estate - you were allowed to walk along the river & admire the fabulous selection of deer.
saying hello ;)
Here's the distance we were away from the deer
What a stunning place
sweet highland cattle
getting a little close to me!
an ancient cross in an enclosed graveyard. I've no links for these lovely things, this & the mother & child statue, how it got there etc, I'd be here all night, sorry!
boisterous horses behind a fence ;)
walking a little bit above Inverie - i was ready for my lunch!
Leaving, you go all the way down the lock & back again, not just for jolly but to deliver people to walk away & collect people who've walked in. Also to deliver or collect packages.
Heading further left we've got to get thru the Kyles, a
narrow space at the end of that sandbar.
glancing right to Cameron MacIntosh's rebuilt pile - it had been burnt down, he's the play write
nearly at the end of the lock looking at Sgurr na Key (phonetic spelling, sorry)
Heading back with the Cuillin range on Skye just visible.
Back at the port - how could I resist these gulls bottoms?!
