Fine weather continues here so I'm back on the FJ. Yesterday I took my annual trip to the Ardnamurchan peninsular in the West Highlands.
|Welcome to the Highlands
|Camper van from Germany
|View from the ferry
|Welcome to Ardnamurchan. My map shows that Ardnamurchan is the area at the end of the peninsular but the name gets applied to the whole peninsular.
|River Gour at Loch Linnhe
|The Caribbean or the Greek islands? - no - the west coast of Scotland!
|River Shiel at Archarcle
|Foxgloves seem to thrive in this area
|Loch Ailort - biking roads don't come much better than this
was a sad sight. A once grand building allowed to fall into ruin.
Inverailort House (or Castle) is a very odd building. The oldest parts
are maybe 17th century with multiple extensions over the years.
Architecturally it's all over the place. No attempt was made to match
any of the various parts. The obituary of the last(?) resident gives some of its strange history. here
