The Cluanie is in a great spot and we must come back here.
The morning dawned sunny but by the time we had breakfast it had changed to cloudy with showers. Breakfast was excellent We gave our compliments and paid the bill and headed off to Torridon.
The drive from the Cluanie to Sheildaig has to be one of the most beautiful drives in the UK. Fortunately the day improved and the views were stunning.
Stopping in Strathcarron for a few supplies and a coffee we had a call to say our cottage would be ready early and it would be ok to check in at 1.00pm.
We made good time, not a single caravan got in the way. Our home for the week is a cottage on the south side of Loch Sheildaig in Kenmore. It is right on the loch with the wonderful sight across the loch of Beinn Alligin,
Its a peaceful place with a sun deck. We have made good use of it this afternoon watching nature at its best. So much to see, Herons, Buzzard, Red throated divers, Cormorants, lots of the usual garden birds and even a Door mouse came to visit the dropped seeds under the bird table.
The scene changes by the minute as the light and shadow varies with the cloud movement. We can't take our eyes off the loch as we are told Dolphins, seals and otters can be seen. The constant smile on our faces tell it all. Most wonderful.
We now are waiting for the sun to set on our first day here and hope for good sunset.
Now where did we put the whisky.
Our stunning view. I think we might just sit here for the week.
