Scotland 2008 Part X:A Tour of Around Lochcarron

My first day waking in Lochcarron saw the most beautiful morning, with wisps of mist floating through the hills above the end of the loch.

Strome Castle is a ruined castle on the shore of Loch Carron in Stromemore, 3.5 miles south-west of the village of Lochcarron One of the first views you see when entering the fort is a ruin of a wonderful arched window overlooking the loch, out towards the sea. Too popular with tourists to work with either model Nude, Ingrid had brought a white dress for just such an occasion, and though some eye-brows were raised as she modeled, no offense was given, and Ingrid was left with a haunting portrait in a stunning setting.

The beauty of this image belies the fact that it was drizzling on and off all through our travels through the valley the Dun Telve Broch is in. I would have loved to have made some images of Ingrid or Miranda in the building, but between the rain, and the public location, it wasn’t practical.
