Having spent most of Saturday going short walks with the dog, Sunday unearthed a hidden gem for me. I noticed from closer study of my o.s. map that there was a side road, over a quaint bridge, leaving from Loch Ainort which would take me along the northern shores of the loch and onto a peninsula that was probably by-passed by the tourist trade.
Moll would be really the only signs of civilisation here, so I parked the car, got on my boots and made my way round the headland for around a couple of miles before returning to my vehicle.
Maybe, in that it was a fine day with excellent visibility, no wind and no people, the walk was supreme.
Going round the coast, here, offered great photo opportunities of the Isle of Raasay and Scalpay and even further north on Skye, through the Narrows of Raasay, not to mention southwards and Loch na Cairidh, which is also a narrows of sorts at Scalpay.
Sightings of the ferry to Raasay Isle enhanced the visuals no end. Not to be missed, if time permits.
