In this picture, we looked across Mingary Castle towards the hill called Maol Buidhe and the steep cliffs of Sron Bheag at the far end of Ormsaigbeg. The low outline of the island of Coll lies along the horizon.

West Ardnamurchan Community Development Company and West Ardnamurchan Community Council, working together and with other local groups, are seeking to develop an Action Plan which will identify the challenges that the area faces and the ideas which will help make West Ardnamurchan an even more attractive place in which to live and work into the future. It will also help us attract new funding and ensure that developments are in tune with the needs and wishes of those affected.
The process starts with survey, available both on-line and in printed form, and the public meetings will follow - see poster above for details.
The survey is here.

We've been away for a long weekend and, on our return, stopped as usual at Camas nan Geall, the point where we feel we are finally 'home', to take a photograph of a sleety squall rattling in across the bay and Ben Hiant behind it.
Judging by Kilchoan Early Bird's photograph, taken earlier this morning, it's been fairly stormy during our absence. His picture shows the Lord of the Isles rounding Ardnamurchan Point. We noted on our return to the house that over 40mm of rain and other forms of precipitation had fallen since Friday morning.
Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird and the Raptor for their pictures.

The easy way back is along the road, but if you're a strong walker, head south towards Beinn na Seilg and then turn east to skirt the glassy area in Lag a' Choire - you might find the remains of the illicit whisky still that's supposed to be sited there.
