Highlands Getaway

I am now back from my short break to the Scottish Highlands. My husband and I decided to take a few days before uni starts to get away and enjoy some bracing fresh air, along with some strong winds and pouring rain! We camped at a beautiful place near Fort William and spent our time travelling to the Isle of Skye, Plockton, Arisaig, Glenelg, the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and surrounding areas. There was simply too much to photograph, but the beauty of the surroundings made it easy for me to capture what is shown here.

Below are tasters to following posts. Out of the 650+ photos taken over the four days, I have chosen the best from each place visited to show in separate posts during the next few weeks.

The Rainbow was the most vibrant we had ever seen, beautiful colours which were so clear. It will probably be the clearest rainbow we will ever see in our lives!
