My Sky

I promised last week I would post farther views of our
journey through the cattle pass over
Bealach na ba
(9km road av6.8%) to Applecross

this is a higher view from where we were last week
still looking back towards Torridon

this is the view from the top over to the islands of
Southern Skye, Rum & Eigg

me & the teenagers

Rua Reidh Lighthouse near Melvaig

12 miles north of Gairloch

all taken late August 2007

For more skies, visit hosts/hostesses
Sandy Carlson, Louise, Sylvia, Klaus, Wren, & Fishing Guy


  1. Kelly took the words right out of my mouth. I love the first shot..

  2. They're all lovely but I just love that first one.. it's breathtaking!

  3. I'm so glad to have seen these. all 3 images are just great...nice to see your teens walking/hiking with you - can't say the same about mine.

  4. Henstly I have NEVER seen a sight like this except in movies!

  5. Saz, stunning. And that last shot of you and the kids is great. (Love that rolling sidebar of you guys, too.)

  6. WOW, WOW, WOW! Beautiful pictures. Thanks for showing them to us.

  7. I feel as if I was there! I love the last shot - All looking very brave and strong under that lowering sky and next to the beacon of light - Wonderful, Saz - Hope you are still resting up there? Have a sazfab weekend! I've now got the day off for your Rufus-Day, so yay! - Let us loose!!! x

  8. I remember finding Applecross on a map as an Geography obsessed teen and being fascinated by the idea of a village with no road access. It's fabulous to finally see photos of the area. Thank you!

  9. Oh Saz, it's breath taking, isn't it? Hubby and his dad took a week out to tour the whisky distilleries around that part, and they visited the Isle of Sky as part of it. My father in law was elderly in ill health, one of the reasons my husband wanted to take some time out one on one with him. It proved to be the most magical time they ever spent together. He died a few months later. The isle of Sky has a very special place in my husband's heart.

  10. Oooo, that looks SO beautiful, I want to go!
    (How are you?)


  11. Lovely ... especially the first

  12. Ah. When I see photos like these, my ancestral MacPherson genes cry out for me to be there. Either that or it's the beans I ate last night.

    Really, lovely shots. I truly would like to be there, just sitting my bones down on the hillside to stare at the water and wonder about whatever pleasant thoughts came to mind. Thanks for sharing them.

  13. Lovely, lovely skywatch Friday post.

  14. You live in such lovely country, and you capture it beautifully.

  15. Of course I visited Sazzie, yesterday, but with the hosp. visit and then odds and ends did not have time to comment.

    These photos are lovely and I guess that the beautiful, wild country surrounding you kinda makes up for the distance between us, just a little, and the fact of worse weather than we suffer down here in our little cosy corner.



Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
