Well at least Gail remembered to pack my waterproof coat this time...
There is a theory that May is the best month to take a holiday in the West of Scotland. When the days are long, the midges not yet abundant and the weather calm and settled. Supposedly.
Well, midges don't like severe gale force winds, so it's true we didn't see too many of them over at Loch Torridon last week. And it's also true that it wasn't getting dark until nearly ten in the evening, not that there's much incentive to go outside and take advantage of the daylight if it's also raining horizontally. Settled weather? Ha! Judge for yourself from the photo below..
By dint of careful shower dodging, we did manage to get out and do some exploring, and at least the waterfalls looked impressive.
