Photographer's Note

The weather has stayed with us... We planned a third big tour, to the west this time, driving first north from Inverness until Gorstan, then west along the A832 road... Simply astonishing!

Achnasheen's name comes from the Gaelic for field of the storms. The village is actually no more storm prone than anywhere else in the north west Highlands, but it sits at a height of around 500ft in the broad valley of the River Bran, offering very little shelter of any kind. It is easy to believe that any cattle drovers caught by a storm here would remember it.

WARNING: Don’t think the colours have been enhanced, it is reaaaaaally the way we saw it... :)
