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

Thursday, after a very lazy morning, to get into the mood for the evening shift at the Inn and as the sun was shining, a walk to Ardbain was called for with my two mates.

There was a pretty healthy breeze blowing from the west

but the walk in with the usual companions was bright,


and sheltered.

In the right conditions you would be hard pushed to find such a beautiful wander, certainly on the west coast. If you can time it with the low tide all the better.

The active weather out west breaks up the views,

with the constantly changing dark showers sweeping in from the islands. Sometimes with all that is going on here, it is tempting to just drop out and live right on the edge.

But after ears flowing in the wind

it is back to the hubbub of life in Applecross and the Inn.

  1. Ah I remember walking there years ago after Sunday lunch at the inn but could never remember were it was. It was only after pouring over Google earth a few years ago I remembered were it was. What a magical place.

    Our favourite walk when we visit Applecross and obviously and unsurprisingly we are not the only ones. Thanks for the reminder Ali.

    It’s a great walk and when we last walked it a couple of years ago it was not really any different from when I first walked it more than 40 years ago. So beautiful and peaceful. Thanks for the pics as always.
