You must have done something right to be blessed with weather like that, what an experience, words fail me, just hope I get the same when I visit Suilven for the first time :D

Thanks for sharing, just lovely.
Couple of nice synchronicities - after a break of a few years from obsession was listening to elbow again today as I put your video on, I had to check I had paused the elbow live video.
And this Spring a friend and I drove through Assynt en route from Dornoch to play the wonderful Durness course so got great views of Suilven.

Lovely day coming from Dornoch


and left a few golf balls in the local lochs
