A Trip Over the West

We had glorious weather yesterday and as OH and I were both off work we decided to head out over to the West coast.  We stopped at these waterfalls on route.

Its only 40 odd miles away but it takes a while as a lot of the route is on one track road with pull ins to allow passing vehicles.  The triangular mountain ahead is called Suilven.
The lochs water was so blue and not a cloud in the sky.
Stunning scenery everywhere.  We headed towards Ullapool.

There it is at the bottom of this hill.  

We walked along the front, the sun was beating down on us.  I popped into a few gift shops which are aimed at the tourists but I didn't buy anything.  I spotted a lovely little antique/bric a brac shop and brought a little loyd loom chest which had a newly upholstered lid for £15.

A local lady told us about some gardens to visit just a few miles away so we decided to go there.

We drove through this archway entrance

Paid our entrance fee of £3 each and went into Leckmelm gardens.

Daisy covered walkways
The smell of the honeysuckle was lovely
Still lots of bluebells
Enormous trees giving welcome shade on such a hot day

Strolling behind OH.  
These gardens have only just opened again after the wild storms of January 2015 blew down lots of the trees but as you can see it was still a lovely garden to visit.

  1. Ullapool is such a lovely place to visit, although I have never visited the gardens, we usually catch the ferry there on our trip[s over to the Isle of Lewis.
