View from the B884 (2018)
A view from the same position just short of 43 years after Richard Sutcliffe's NG2049 : View from the B884.

Conditions are hazier, so the distant Cuillin range is less distinct, but Dunvegan Castle shows up clearly across the loch. There are scant remains of the old thatched building in the foreground, but an access road has been cut behind them to a substantial new building development. The old telephone pole with its array of individual insulators has been replaced by a modern distribution pole fed by underground cable (and now carrying broadband data as well as voice telephony). Behind the new wheelie bin store are glimpsed two new properties NG2049 : The Orchids and Peapods. Only the posts of the roadside fencing seem little changed.
