Photos from the collection loch

Ardvreck Castle, Sutherland, Scotland

A shot which took a little patience to achieve; waiting for around quarter of an hour until the solitary patches of sunlight passed across the loch to strike the castle. Just out of shot to the right: Archie running back and forth and enjoying the wind whipping across the water.

Remote

Driving with Jo up from Fort William to Mallaig, to catch the ferry to Skye in April 2005, we passed many remote lochs and bothies hidden in quiet, lonely glens.
