Shieldaig

We popped over to the west coast to the village of Shieldaig for lunch yesterday.  It’s a stunning spot and the journey there is pretty spectacular too.  Unfortunately, the sun stood me up and the skies were grey and leaden making for pretty unspectacular photos of a spectacular area.  Fully intend on returning again on the first sunny day we get.  Assuming we ever get another sunny day, that is…

  1. I dunno, I’d say you had a pretty spectacular little admirer there behind the ferns in that first picture… looks grand, wish I could trot off to these locales on the weekend!

  2. Margaret – She was a poser!
    Robyn – Agreed but it could be so much prettier in the sun!
    Geraldine – That pyramid is a mountain on the isle of Skye. It’s callled… David is investigating as I type… …. …. ….It’s Glamaig.
    Kim – Me too but it was a little too dull for my liking that day. :)

  3. It still looks beautiful to me…especially considering our HOT summer here in North Carolina…over 6 consecutive days between 100* F and 104* F (37*C-40*C)!

  4. Beautiful, thanks for sharing these lovely images – once again I am reminded that I must plan a trip to Scotland soon. My sister has visited Torridon and shared similarly lovely photos.

  5. We love Shieldaig and when staying near Applecross always make the journey to have a spot of lunch at Nanny’s – the little corrugated shop just as you come into the village. Really good soup, and of course, what every girl will travel miles for, very good cake! Good locally made bits and pieces for sale in there too. Definitely worth a visit next time you are heading that way. Good luck with the sunshine! We’ve had some reasonable sunshine over the last week but definitely do not take it for granted! Love your blog – hope you might take a peek at mine!
