Four locations around Applecross
Fine weather and a weekend unexpectedly to myself gave me an opportunity to clear up a few squares around Applecross that have been outstanding for a while. First, it was to the Kishorn Yard, where I was able to get surprisingly close to the old construction dock. From there, I was forced to head back uphill for a bit, around the boundary fence, to get some shots of the nearby shoreline. Then a sweaty reascent to the road, and in the car up to Cuaig.
Just a single square to grab at Cuaig, missed from the previous weekend's kayak trip. I had hoped to photograph the beacon at the northern end of the square, but I failed to find it, and settled on a scene of waves lapping the rocks at the shore.
In the car again to Inverbain, and the longest walk of the day, up the path that leads to Applecross Bay, leaving before the col to get pictures of Loch Lundie and Abhainn Dubh, returning via the new hydro scheme.
Finally, I stopped off at the summit of the A896 between Shieldaig and Kishorn, and trotted up the southern end of Ben Shieldaig. I was tired and hungry by this point, so I spurned the summit and drove home from there.
