Beautiful Blue hues of the Sea and sky at Arisaig

Ideas for road trips, the West Coast is not too far for a day visit from Gaskbeg.  Fort William is only an hour and Arisaig about 2 hours.  On the way to Arisaig you pass through Glenfinnan with the famous viaduct in Harry Potter and also some important Scottish History! The Beaches at Arisaig are absolutely amazing and well worth a visit.  The picture is Camusdarach beach.  It was the location for the 1980’s film Local Hero.  The beach and dune system extends for quite a distance between Arisaig and Mallaig and includes the golden sands or Morar.



Summer Wildlife

We were lucky to have a couple of Tawny owlets this summer, they were very good at being in the wrong place, in the middle of the road or on my wheels! so we had to be very careful.   At night you could hear them and their parents calling each other, their parents kept feeding them for a while.  Last week I saw one flying and landing properly in a tree so I think that is them fending for themselves now.  If you like wildlife I would recommend The Highland Wildlife Park is only 15miles from Gaskbeg and definitely worth a visit.  They have artic fox cubs at the moment Spruce, Storm, Rosie, Dena and Toots not sure which this one is but looking very cute!I (Photo credit Highland Wildlife Park)
