New Year in Lochcarron

Sketches from our New Year's trip to Highlands. There was not much of the sun out there - the most spectacular clouds, rain and snow and rain again - so the sketches are rather grey (the main reason was me being too lazy to use anything more than a black pen and a pencil) .  
breakfast at the sithean
The best breakfast of the year - scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.
fish and chips in applecross

happy new year
There was more deer than sheep out there. No hares though.
snowstorm and gairloch
Here is us stuck in a car during a sudden snowstorm. Very steep and winding single lane road and the best piece of advice I've had in a long time (from a van driver) - whatever happens do not touch the break!
In a pub in Cromarty. We are having a cup of tea and rats get very excited about their favourite cheese.
