Yesterday I took a run to the furthest west point in the British mainland. Ardnamurchan is a peninsular west of Fort William. It is a wild, remote and sparsely populated area. But it is possible for me to do a day visit.
|On the way there Glencoe had some low cloud but I hoped that this is would clear.|
|The SV at Loch Ailort|
|Looking over Loch Sunart|
|Camas nan Geall (Bay of Strangers)|
|Near the end of the peninsular I took a diversion to Sanna to see this magnificent sandy beach. On the deserted road there I thought I might have it to myself but the car park was busy and there a fair amount of people enjoying the beach.|
|Loch Sunart at the village of Strontain|
|River Gour flows into Loch Linnhe|
|I took the Corran Ferry over Loch Linnhe to avoid having to go back to Fort William.|
This was great day out in a really beautiful and remote area. Progress can be slow because many of the roads are single track and liberally coated in gravel. But worth it for the seclusion, a rare thing in out crowded country.
I've tried to get the locations correct but it is hard in this area of twisting roads, many bodies of water and few towns.
