A view on Fishing,Community and Life on the NW coast of Scotland

Westerly breeze and the van was booked in for a service in Lochcarron so a day off the prawns and the Inn. Rain  and more rain so Dougal did not join me and it was off to the Waterside Cafe, for a couple of hours before heading back to pick up the van and away to Shieldaig for my fortnightly Thai massage with Sarah. Been quite regular lately and there is a definite improvement in all my fishing aches and pains. In fact reckon I have never been fitter despite the old head giving me gip now and again. As well as a painful massage there is a tranquillity and peace as well. To be quite honest the drive back is always different and so relaxed especially as you learn to respond to the treatment. There seems to be more time to stop and look around, seeing things from another perspective. Reminds me of an old saying that two people can look at the same thing and see it differently. And that is ok until we screw it up by trying to convince the other guy your way is the only way to see things. So with this in mind stopped on the Bealach and, although cold, wandered over to sit by the stream, Alt a’ Chumhaing. Very handy having access to the Applecross Place names Project to find out what all these features and streams are called. www.applecrossplacenames.org.uk/

  1. Another nice blog. Lovely pic of the downstream meandering across the moss towards the bay. It is so nice to be able to find somewhere really quiet to sit and just be.
    I couldn’t make that link work without copy/paste to the address box, but that place names site is a nice project. So many local place names become lost in obscurity – for example, I used to live in a place called Dick Fool’s lane, although when I first moved there, I was told that it was Ducksfoot lane. I could never find out who Dick Fool was, or when he was either.

      I have to admit it was a little cold and did not stay too long but it was worth it. I am just starting to link and may be doing something that is making it difficult to use. I will see if I can improve. The place names project it excellent.
