Lews Castle, built around 1850 by Sir James Matheson, who'd bought the island some years before this, is visible at the top left of the photo.
Some photos of the area between Ullapool and Inverness.
The area of Scotland around Inverness is fertile, with farms and fields a-plenty.
This photo was taken at the very beginning of March and so the fields aren't green and lush like they will be in a few months' time. I still love it.
Just a few miles along the road to Ullapool, and the landscape is very different.
(There also seem to be drivers who think they're in America. Or maybe they were simply overtaking.)
There would not have been much opportunity for folks to grow their own food or to feed their livestock in these areas in years gone by. Little wonder that so much of this area is empty.
