Mountains of Assynt – Stoer

Last week I mentioned we had our first fall of winter snow. I thought I would share some I managed to capture of the Assynt mountains with their cloaks of snow.

We had a lovely friend and neighbour up helping us with renovations last week and are delighted that apart from a couple of wee snags Mijbil is now reclad and Edal has one side done.  I am trying very hard to wait till both are complete before showing of the new cladding but here is a peek of both men hard at work.


From this photo you may be able to tell I was up above on the rocks, I (thought I) was surplus to requirements at this point. So decided to wander along to the wee waterfall behind the chalets. Though I seem to have been all around I have never made it over to the waterfall.  It is a lovely wee walk…best done in wellies….at least today anyway, even though some of the ground was hard with frost. These photos show the loch in front of the chalets from another attractive view. I was soon spied taking photos and  shouted back to get on with some graft…….a womans work is never done!
                           

One of the beauties of this area is the diverse landscape and the ability it has to cater for all. There are mountains to climb, seas to swim but inbetween there are a range of walks that cater for all levels. They can be as easy or hard as you want them to be. A gentle stroll or a days adventure. Its up to you.
