Here I forgot to say when we drove onto the campsite yesterday there was a huge fork of lightning ⚡️ out towards the Isle of Rhum. I was driving so didn’t get a photo of it but that would have be a stunning shot. There were a few flashes and claps of thunder but it never came to anything more.
The weather overnight was wild we kept the pop top down all night and the van rocked in the strong wind off the sea. There were moments of torrential rain which woke me up but I cooried in and fell back to sleep. Everytime.
We took a wee walk around the beach as the tide was out and it looks so different from last night.
We decided to take the van out for an explore. It seems a shame to come this far and not visit the places I came when I was wee. I have to say I don’t really remember any of it.
The forecast today was for high winds and heavy rain but we were so lucky that it stayed dry until later in the afternoon.
We then drove up to Mallaig which is at the very end of the Road to the Isles.
We decided to take a drive round the side of Loch Morar. It was an amazing track!
We drove back round to the coast again and decided to explore Camusdarach Beach where they filmed Local Hero. It was stunning! At one point we were the only people on it.
We headed back to the campsite after all our beach visits. My legs are really sore from the Fit Body Farm yesterday!
Had a lovely wee nap though to be honest I spent a fair bit of time lying watching the tide come in. It’s fascinating to watch it edge in… surprisingly quickly. I looked out the other window and spotted this!!
Jumped out and ran down the beach like a maddie….
So we’re back inside all cosied up now as it gets dark. We’ve seen so many different weathers and colours today. Everything Scotland has to offer. We didn’t get snow mind you.
Can highly recommend this stunning part of Scotland. The only sound just now is the click of our diesel heater. It’s like a heart beat.
I’ve missed my boy but I’ve had the best time exploring with Auntie Jac! And she’s been the best chef…. There’s a theme here eh?! I go travelling and get fed by everyone I travel with?!?!? 🤣🤣
Stay safe everyone 🏴🏴🏴
