July 2011 - A Week In Assynt

Well, I never got round to publishing the Cairngorms post I was going to write and yet again its taken a long time to get another blog post together. I'm working on re-designing our main website as well which along with everything else doesn't leave much free time!

We had a one week family holiday in Assynt between the 9th & 16th July and these are the best photos from the week. The weather was pretty kind to us with several warm sunny days under the influence of high pressure, and even with relatively still conditions the midge attacks were only moderate.

We stayed at Glenbain, a lovely old cottage situated remotely a mile above Inchnadamph on the track towards Conival and Ben More Assynt. I've passed the place many times before but following my previous blog post finally got around to enquiring about the cottages availability and struck lucky. We'll be back!

Where are the palm trees? One of my favourite beaches, Achmelvich (the northerly more rocky and secluded one). I should be keeping this place quiet!
Achmelvich, a magical spot

Corey Canute; my sand castle will stop the tide honest, and what can the moon possibly have to do with it? Dad's gone mad!

Dragon fly style on the slopes of Stac Pollaidh - well spotted Erin but I'd have expected more questions about what was going on!
