Back to Wester Ross

I’ve not long returned from my annual trip with three old friends to Bernera near Glenelg on the Sound of Sleat in the shadow of Skye. All the usual suspects were encountered including the resident Pine Martens (Jam and peanuts is a good attractant) and the White tailed Eagle. For the first time in three years I saw an Otter briefly swimming in the sea at 5.00am one morning.

A selection of the hundreds of photos I took, most of which have been binned:

Outer Hebrides from Skye

My favourite view – the Isles of Harris and Lewis from the Northern tip of Trotternish on Skye.
