We started the morning with a little breakfast treat for our lovely guests ……
Then later on in the afternoon we headed out to Mellon Udrigle to walk the circular route around the headland. To the west Opinan was basking in the lovely warm sunshine .
And there were lovely views over to Lochinver & Stoer Lighthouse (if you have exceptional eyesight you can just about see a little white dot on the headland at the far left of the photo!).
to the east the dark skies loomed.
An Teallach, Sail Mhor, Beinn Ghobhlach, Suilven & The Coigachs were all dark & moody under the heavy clouds. The rain did the right thing & stayed over the mountains & out to sea.
There has been a marine survey boat in the area for the last couple of days. As we were watching it patrol the water the Calmac ferry from Stornoway headed towards Ullapool. Just as we were heading home the coastguard/mountain rescue helicopter flew over on it’s way towards Lochinver – Hope no-one has been caught out on the hills with the changeable weather.
