Early summer- Lochcarron from (nearly) Stromeferry.

Early summer in lochcarron

This is one of my favourite places. Although it is on the banks of a loch it has that special feel of a Scottish island: special, ancient and on the edge. Wikipedia says this about Lochcarron:
‘The name Lochcarron is applied to the collection of small settlements strung out along Loch Carron, a sea loch on the west coast of Ross and Cromarty. The village stretches for almost 2 miles, meandering along the shore of the loch. In the 19th Century the village was named Janetown, then Jeantown.[2] The local newspaper, An Carrannach, is published on a monthly basis.
Lochcarron is a central location for hillwalking and touring the West Coast Highlands, including the Torridon, Plockton and Skye regions. Not too far from the village lies the famous road Bealach na Bà (Gaelic: Pass of the cattle), which links the town of Applecross to the rest of the mainland. It is a road popular with tourists, drivers, and motorcyclists alike for its stunning scenery and hairpin bends.’
