Blythswood , Glaick near Balmacara looks south over Lochalsh to Skye.

 

 

The West Coast of Scotland has some of the most beautiful and romantic island and mountain terrain in the world. The Isle of Skye, Plockton, the Five Sisters of Kintail, Eilean Donan Castle and Lochalsh are world famous and their beauty and tranquility have attracted artists and writers over the centuries. Turner's Loch Scavaig, and Gavin Maxwell's "Ring of Bright Water" are well known and the otters of "Camus Fearna" (or Sandaig) still play on the shore below our house. Even Johnson seems to have been favourably impressed by this part of his trip.
