Quick pics

15 Aug

I’ve finally got to some of the holiday pics and I wanted to share them with you. I’ll write more about them tomorrow.

Here’s the view from the terrace: 

We were right opposite the Summer Isles, and the Isle of Lewis is in the far distance:


Here’s the cottage (wrong time of day, wrong angle, but you get the idea). All but the two windows over the spiral staircase are sea side of it:


Here’s a very well-known peak many tourists wish to climb: Stac Pollaidh (pronounced Stack Polly):


See that narrow road at its base? It took 30 minutes to drive from the cottage to a road that had two lanes (one for each direction). Yup. Remote.

And this is where I consider retiring, once Scotland decides on accepting internet as an item of common use:


Love you, my friends. Talk again tomorrow.

    oh it looks a tad cold for me….. but i love the cottage idea overlooking the ocean. I would always have to live near the ocean or water. I grew up on a beach, so it’s in my blood 🙂 xxxx

    Oh, I could write a whole book about the trip. I’ll just stick with a few paragraphs instead. Maybe tomorrow 🙂

    Great pics. I’d love to escape somewhere peaceful for a bit. Might help me write a book, or at least finish one.:)
