Weather was favourable with a good deal of sunshine which augured well for photography. After morning coffee stop we proceeded as follows:
  • Visit famous Lochcarron Weavers which specialise in all types of Scottish tartans and related products. They even have a traditional weaver on site which adds an extra dimension.  We had a lengthy stop here before moving on.

  • Our final call of the day was Castle Urquhart on Loch Ness, a great spot for viewing the famous waterway which is the largest single reservoir of fresh water in the British Isles. We arrived just in time to capture an image of a rainbow over the Loch which added a colourful dimension to the scene.
