Clachtoll and Surrounds, 9th-12th June 2011

Freya had been asking when we'd go back to "The Chicken Campsite"


She couldn't wait to get onto the beach...


Evening light on Clachtoll beach


A wee bit past bedtime...


The chickens took some time deciding which girl to eat first.

After a late start we headed South to Achnahaird beach for some scrambling, paddling and snoozing in the sun


We stayed until dinner time, enjoying the changing light across the bay and the Coigach, Inverpolly and Assynt hills


Roe deer. A large area at the west of Inverpolly has been damaged in a wildfire in April, but the green shoots are taking over again


The next day we went to Achmelvich to enjoy another fine beach

Quiet time


Not-so-quiet time


Investigating a boulder cave above the beach


Packing up at Clachtoll campsite; chickens assisting with the hoovering




A final visit to Clachtoll beach


Satisfied with the trip!


Freya wanted to be left in place. We'll pick her up next time we're back...
