I’m slightly concerned, now that I look back after 17 years, to see that all the places I know I have visited didn’t even make it onto a roll of film! Tragedy – I’ll definitely have to go back again ;)
I know I’ve seen the painted houses of Tobermory, the abbey on Iona, the cliffs that drop into the sea at Carsaig Bay, the awesome beach at Ardanalish Bay and also that at the head of Loch na Keal. I’m very sad that I can’t seem to find a picture of the Kinloch Hotel, Pennyghael, which is very special to my memories. It used to house “The Smallest Pub in Scotland”. At least it did back then. They’ve since expanded…
I also can’t believe there is no photo from halfway up Ben More. It felt like we climbed more than halfway up, but on that particular day I do remember the clouds were so low and almost purple-black in colour, it would have been difficult to tell for sure. Other days, were quite stunningly clear. Not warm, but lovely and clear!
I do, however, have a series of photographs of my “then” crazy classmates taking a dip in Loch Scridain, on a day similar to the one when we had to climb up the side of Ben More. You’ll see. Crazy. They shall remain nameless…
They haven’t stopped laughing yet….
