On the road south from Durness, I was impressed by the bleak landscapes, devoid of habitations.  I would guess that in centuries past, before the clearances, there would have been scattered dwellings of crofters but today there are few signs even of sheep.

In Kinlochbervie I met up with Pat Cooper from the Photo-i Forum.  He has a shop there where he sells some of his prints though it is taking up too much of his time and he is looking to sell out.  He was an engineer with the British Antarctic Survey in Antarctica for many years and has a site of his Antactic images.  He also has a site of images from the Highlands.  He pointed me towards the nearby Sandwood Bay.

What struck me most about Kinlochbervie was not your usual tourist attraction.  It was an industrial wrecker perched in a location that took full advantage of spectacular sea views.

This last image is not so much the Laird parked at his mansion because the Merc was a vehicle in the wrecking yard too.
