Thanks to our lovely little doggy TJ, we were awake early this morning. By lunchtime we had all the housework done and decided to go out in the van for a wee adventure.
We packed our dinner in the van, so we could stay out and eat whenever we felt hungry.
We chose a road that we hadn't been on before....it went up the hills above Cannich and alongside the River Cannich up to the dam at Loch Mullardoch.
The road is about 9 miles long from Cannich and is single track all the way. It is stunningly beautiful and rugged all the way along...and today after the snow melt and heavy rain, it was very wet all around. The river was full and racing alongside the road. All the trees, bracken and moss created a wonderful pallet of colours. We made a mental note to come back here in the autumn.
On reaching the car park at the end of the road we were greeted by the stunning view along the loch.....the car park isnt huge, but it is level and big enough for 2 vans to park comfortably & safely. There is more space closer to the small power station and this might be more sheltered when its wild.
After about an hour, we were rewarded with sunshine and blue skies and we went for a stroll.
We decided we didnt really want to drive back along this road in the dark, so drove back towards Cannich.....we met these 3 along the way....driving along whilst listening to Runrig's Cutter and the Clan.....you can't get much more of an awesome Highland experience than this!
I couldn't resist taking some more photos.....yet another fab adventure!
Next weekend we have a long weekend. We cant wait to be away for a couple of nights in our 'second home' ❤
