Loch Cill Chriosd

By jeanie      
We took a drive along the 15 mile stretch of road between Broadford and Elgol last week...heck of a road that it is ..took us four hours to reach Elgol! hahah. Smile

This is one of the numerous stops we made, and while I was watching the light, Chris was rescuing an injured heron and putting it into a safe place in the reeds so it never got run over - what a hero Smile

*Apologies to all who voted on my earlier image, I had to remove it when it was brought to my attention that there was some banding in the sky......back to the drawing board for that one! *

That's quite bonny and you resisted the temptation to show the nearest hill-dollops and give us a glimpse of Blabheinn instead Wink
Did you go for a look at High Pasture Cave up the slope behind you?
