Rowing & Sunset

The last day in the Scottish Highlands, we had a more laid-back day. We stayed in an atmospheric old hotel that we found by a lake after several days of camping and a lot of midge bites. We rowed a boat around some beautifully crafted yachts anchored on the lake until the dinner time .

Sheep on the coast

Another day, another coastal walk. We headed out to see some wild seals. We failed to spot them. They must had been out swimming in the sea. Instead what we spotted was a sheep with wild hair cut.

Cows on the coast

So many of them, so close, the cows were really staring at us. We had to go off the trail several times to avoid any tension between us… It was a stunningly beautiful day.

Fishing stations

On the way to the 6 hours of coastal walk… I got fascinated by the random objects laying around a fishing station.

Found another old fishing station that I was not sure if it was in use. It was a mess, but I was again excited by the mixture of random objects.

This one was clearly not in use. It was a proper ruin. I liked the graffiti on the wall in the ‘fishing station ruin’ style.

Highlands

I went to the Scottish Highlands for the first time…

Amazing…, one of the rare original Caledonian pine forests that once covered the vast areas of Scotland.

Rested by the lake after a steep mountain walk that burned off some calories.

I love camping. I wish that there weren’t so many midges though. Then that would had been too good to be true.
