Wilderness Walking - Wilds of Assynt
Having driven through Assynt before, I was determined to go back and explore this fabulous landscape in more detail. Highlights for me were Quinag, Suilven and the leaping salmon at Rogie Falls - an iconic Scottish sight! The food was almost too good - as my waistline will testify (I had thought to return as a slimmer version of myself after all the walking, but alas the abundant local seafood got the better of me).The landscape here is truly breathtaking and inspiring, and I will head north again as soon as I can. Thank you to Kirsty for being a brilliant guide, driver, encyclopaedia and all round fun person.
