Fort William – Ardnamurchan peninsula

Iestyn is actually proud of this picture

Oh no, Iestyn’s knee hurt in the morning, and got swollen and red from yesterday’s slip on the rocks, so we couldn’t go do Ring of Steall trail. We decided to do a nice scenic drive up North instead, tuning into the smooth sounds of radio Nevis (really :)).

We dropped in the award-winning information centre near Fort William, which hosted a beautiful exhibition of wildlife photographs. Other than that, the award-not-winning information centre was equally as nice, and we got our postcards there.

We made a yummy lunch on the beach of Loch Linnhe opposite Fort William, closely watched by two swans, which turned out to be quite picky, not wanting the rest of our delicious couscous. Anyway, the area was so beautiful, and we enjoyed the route all the way up to Ardnamurchan lighthouse, marking the westernmost point on British mainland. It’s also right next to Sanna Bay, apparently one of the prettiest beaches around.

We camped back by Loch Sunart on a pretty spot just by the water, with quite a bit of midges, but still nice.
