At this time of the year in the midst of Winter, my thoughts start to turn towards holidays. One of the ways I like to combat the Winter Blues is to have a look back at some of my shots from past trips and try and relive those sunshine filled days! We had an amazing week on the West Coast in October last year. It really was pretty magical and yes the weather was as good as it looks for a whole week!! We stayed at a beautiful place called Mungnasdale with a group of friends, the house was right next to the beach and just north of stunning Gruinard Bay. The kids had a ball, they did their first Munro, went rock climbing and spent every single minute outdoors. They had whole days on the beach and opened their own shop selling their beach combing finds in the garden shed ( proceeds went to the RSPB !) After such a miserable Winter it’s nice to be reminded that Scotland can be amazing on those rare occasions when the weather cooperates and the midges are hibernating!
