Looking east across Gruinard bay
North towards Coigach
Bracken on Gruinard island - not much else lives on this previous site of government experiments into germ warfare. It was laced with anthrax & although it is now deemed to be "safe", it's not high on anyone's list of places to go!

Today a team from the North West of England came to the school with their rocket. It was a science project and some of the pupils made and flew their own rockets later in the day.

The walk started from Achnasheen railway station and was all on grassy slopes once we'd crossed the road and gone through the farm.
We followed a stream most of the way up and found a lovely pool and little waterfall

We have had some nice sunny weather of late and after the jobs were done on Saturday we went for a kayak trip from Poolewe.
As we headed for the open Loch it got a bit windy and rough so we stayed around the bay and investigated the Pool House Hotel and the river Ewe which enters the Loch here.

Summer is still with us & all was calm yesterday afternoon. We could see porpoise quite close in to shore.
