Well, the weather has been kind of topsy turvy, but what else can we expect for the good old Scottish climate. It has actually been quite nice, plenty of rain and a good bit of sun as well, but all in all it has mostly remained nice and warm. Just recently we ventured off on a 1000 mile trip around Scotland, taking in many wonderful, breathtaking  sights that our country has to offer. We took in a lot of the North Coast 500 route but opted for discovery and adventure off the beaten track. The first day was quite a drive, we set out from Aberdeen and headed to Monymusk, then onto Donside, over the Tomintoul road and on to Fort William. We picked up some fishing tackle at Fort William and the next leg of the journey we headed to Sanna Bay, the most Westerly point on the British mainland. From Fort William to Sanna Bay, a lot of the road was very, very, very narrow and windy, up and down, sharp corners, sheep on the road, wildlife everywhere, stunning views, it had it all and it was remote, very remote. One thing was missing though, and very surprising too.......The Midges!.  We did encounter the horrid wee beasties but not on the scale that we are used to any time we have visited the West Coast, this was a pleasant surprise, maybe we just got lucky. The drive through the extinct volcano on our approach to Sanna Bay was amazing, the sun going down behind the mountains and over the Atlantic ocean through up a vast array of blazing, intense bold colours through the light misty rain, forming spectacular, intense rainbows, we have never witnessed so many rainbows and so bright as this, it was beautiful to see in such a stunning setting.
