A Scottish Journey III

The journey across the Highlands of Scotland is breathtaking.  You may know from my last post that Hub and I travelled last week from the port of Ullapool on the west mainland to the north east town of Wick, a former Viking settlement and once a very busy fishing port.

Here are some images of this leg of our trip, once again taken from the car:

As you can see, the landscape is stunningly beautiful – a feast for the eyes wherever one looks.

As with our previous stops, we had only a short time in Wick, but it was long enough for me to have a good look around while Hub was in a meeting.  I have tons of photos so will devote a single post to this lovely area in my next ‘Scottish Journey’ post.  In the meantime, here is a taster of things to come.  This shot was taken from a headland to which one could walk, looking back on the town of Wick and its lovely harbour:

    Beautiful! I have fond memories of Ullapool. Many moons ago I did some volunteer ‘Woofing’ (Workers on organic farms), planting trees on Isle Martin which is just off the coast of Ullapool. I’d never been that far north before and the scenery and wildlife just blew my mind. I’d love to go back one day. 🙂
