  5. Perfect! Few commercialised sites within 6 - 10 miles but we prefer the quiet sites. If you look closely at the bottom pic you can see the site on the right half way up the pic looking over the loch.

  8. Maybe that's because it's cold, wet and dark. Looks grim to me. :)
     
  9. Ideal for me :D the sun is overrated..

    Walking/biking is best done while grim....:cool:
     
  10. The far Cuillins are pullin' me away *)
    As take I wi' my cromack to the road.
    The far Coolins are puttin' love on me
    As step I wi' the sunlight for my load.

    Chorus:
    Sure by Tummel and Loch Rannoch
    And Lochaber I will go
    By heather tracks wi' heaven in their wiles.
    If it's thinkin' in your inner heart
    The braggart's in my step,
    You've never smelled the tangle o' the Isles.
    Oh the far Coolins are puttin' love on me
    As step I wi' my cromack to the Isles.It's by Shiel water the track is to the west
    By Aillort and by Morar to the sea,
    The cool cresses I am thinkin' of for pluck
    And bracken for a wink on Mother knee.
    Chorus:

    It's the blue islands are pullin' me away
    Their laughter puts the leap upon the lame;
    The blue islands from the Skerries to the Lewis
    Wi' heather honey taste upon each name.
    Chorus:
