... scenery, and it fair takes yer breath away. Take a look at these...quite a few Munros up here (mountains over 3,000 feet high... of which there are 282 throughout Scotland where bagging (climbing) them is a national pastime).

The place names in this remote region are wonderful......get yer tongue around Achiltibuie, ...

... of us and Loch na Sealga to the west. In amongst a stand of trees, surprisingly in a place as remote as this, a cuckoo started calling, followed by another in a tree ahead of me. This bird then flew and I got to watch them both flying for a few minutes. A rare sight and welcome. But then it was back to walking. We ate on the move and continued to make good progress. Up here we saw one other party of walkers in the distance. They looked like a D of E group. Other wise, we were on our ...

... the river into full spate and we had yet to cross it. The plan was to walk three miles upstream and then cross. We ended up trudging an extra mile, gave up hope of a dry route and waded across. Wet but hopeful. Only to find that by crossing so far up we had another "stream" to cross. This too was now a minor torrent. More wading but we were at least now homeward bound. Just the small matter of a climb to 520 meters to cross ...

... down fishing lodges already. This place has been very well renovated and as with everywhere we have stayed, remarkably welcoming. Only six fishers here though. Apparently Sunday is a popular changeover day and worse still, the salmon are not present this year. This party caught their only fish on Monday, so some left early. Various reasons given....trawling, pollution though the gilly says the waters are just too low for the time of year. ...

... back to Ullapool to fill the car up. The diesel here is a staggering £1.50 per litre but it's kind of what we expected given that it's a long way to transport it and it's the only petrol station in town. They don't even bother to advertise their prices here as there is no choice. We've been warned to keep the car topped up now as there are very few (if any) fuel stations from here on in. We return to the campsite for late lunch and a quiet afternoon. We ...

    Four of us stayed in the bunkhouse in a 4 bed dorm. Just right for a cheap overnight stop - top location, quiet and clean facilities. No frills, just what's needed. A top cheap stay!
