Today Blogville is celebrating our dear friend (and esteemed former Mayoress) Madi's 16th birthday with posts about road trips.
One of Gail and my favourite road trips is along the shores of Loch Torridon, eastwards from our cottage on the northern shore then around the head of the loch to the village of Shieldaig on the south side, a distance of thirteen miles by road (although less than two if you have a boat).
For those of you who aren't familiar with the area, Loch Torridon is a sea inlet/fjord in NW Scotland.
The photos below were taken yesterday. As you will see, Spring has yet to arrive in this part of the world.
Oh and this, er, 'tail-end' photo is especially for my most favourite Diva!
Happy Birthday Madi!
PS from Gail: A word about driving safety! The roads around Loch Torridon are almost deserted at this time of year so, just this once, I allowed Bertie the freedom of the passenger seat. There are many places where one can pull off the road and stop, and all the photos were taken from such spots.
