Dornoch Firth

As the A9 main road winds its way north, along the eastern coast of the north of Scotland, it crosses the Cromarty Firth before winding along to the Dornoch Firth, right at the head of the estuary as the river runs out to the sea. Dark, brooding weather is a common feature of the northern parts of Scotland and on overcast days, such as this one, the few hours of daylight in winter do little to show the landscape to its best advantage.
