The weatherÂ deterioratedÂ today, if that was possible and the showers got heavier and the wind increased.
Kinlochewe… and a bit of a disaster!
It never rains but it pours!
Kinlochewe -Torridon and Gairloch 2
The afternoon of our first day around Kinlochewe saw us move up to Gairloch and to Red Point overlooking the islands of Raasay and North Rona.

We had three nights at Kinlochewe and this diary extract from our first day there gives some sense of our mounting frustration with the weather.
Scotland 2011 – Sheil Bridge to Kinlochewe
This set of images takes us from Sheil Bridge to Kinlochewe. WeÂ brieflyÂ touched Skye on this journey crossing on the Kylerhea ferry. Again we had some appalling weather but it cleared for an hour at the very end of the day and Beinn Eighe slowly showed itself.
Scotland 2011- Nevis to Sheil Bridge
The next series of posts will all be about time we spent in Scotland during may of last year (2011) We had chosen to visit the high North West in May for a number of reasons.It’s generallyÂ reckonedÂ to be midgeless, quiet, good for birds and wildlife and the most favourable time for weather that gives a clarity of light with fineÂ visibility. On all those counts it never delivered. Birds were few and far between, in two weeks we didn’t see a single deer let alone anything else in the mammal line, the midges showed up earlier than usual and visibility was, on the whole, very poor! The Met Office weather summary for the time we were up in Scotland says it all.
