Shops! In the hills to the north of Strontian lead was mined in the 18th century and in these mines the mineral strontianite was discovered, from which the element strontium was first isolated.

The giddy feeling of walking on pavement for the first time in many days at Strontian

Tonight I’m sleeping in this cute wooden tent.

Perfect

Finally a chance to dry everything out.

    • Yes it was a good moment, it’s hard to photograph birds with any sense of context so I was pleased with that one. There’s something so British about sheds so seeing one marooned like that made me chuckle!

  1. Just looked at the map a little closer – how long do you expect it to take to do the west coast?? That is a lot of ground to cover with all of the inlets and such! I love what you’re doing though and wish I could too, or at least parts of it. I’ve always heard about how beautiful the west coast of Scotland is and it appears to be true.

    • I’ve reached Ullapool now (thirty days ahead from this post due to editing backlog) should take a couple of weeks to complete the west coast when I head back up in June

    I’m enjoying following your travels – feels like I’m seeing all these places the easy way. You’ve reached more familiar territory to me now that you’re in Ullapool, so I shall look forward to reading about that. (I’m originally from near Thurso, but haven’t been up that way for a good few years.)

        I am looking forward to reading that bit…there should be a lot of familiar sights…and a big dose of nostalgia for me! 🙂

  3. Wonderful stuff. I love the photo of Strontian and Loch Sunart (I) with the strip of sunlight and the moody snow and mist on the hill above. All the British weather is here! Also, I want that cute wooden tent for my garden – where can I find it?
