I spend a lot more time these days on taking the roadside snaps I'd always wanted to take but never took the time for before.

Some really cracking pics there (except the selfie :lol: ).

After reading reports of walks in this part of the world, I always say the same thing: I need to get up there myself..

Thanks. That's my wife pressurising me into smiling for the camera.

Assynt/Coigach is certainly a world apart. Happens to be my favourite but still need the variety that Scotland offers.

Some great views for relatively low height gain - nice area for a wander. A visit up here is also on the to do list but no idea when unfortunately - cheers :)

Not quite what I had planned but still a good walk in interesting surroundings.
