Loch Maree and Red Point

30th September 2006Photography
Read More
One of the largest freshwater lochs in Scotland, Loch Maree has over 65 islands, most of these wooded with indigenous Scots pine trees. As one of the approaches to Gairloch and the west coast, Loch Maree is an iconic tourist location. Further to the north and at the end of a small single track road, Red Point beach is a wonderfully secluded setting with a beach which looks westwards to Skye and the Outer Hebrides. With red - hued sand, and set against a stunning panoramic backdrop, this is surely one of the most picturesque beaches on the west coast of Scotland

The Stornoway Coastguard Emergency Services Open Day
(and how we cruised the Minch with the Coastguard)

24th to 25th June 2006Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team
Read More
June 2006 and the Stornoway Coastguard Station hosted the 3rd annual Emergency Services Open Day.

With 28 organisations in attendance, Dundonnell Mountain Rescue Team was asked to participate in the day; a great opportunity for some publicity and to meet with some of the other agencies. Six of us set off on the morning Caledonian MacBrayne ferry from Ullapool over to Stornoway.

With no ferry back on the Sunday, the plan was to spend the night on board the Coastguard tug, the 'Anglian Prince', which would take us back to Ullapool the next day. Enjoying a barbecue in Stornoway that evening, we were informed by the local Coastguard that the Anglian Prince had been called out to assist the passage of a tanker through the Minch and we needed to return to the ship as soon as possible. Around midnight, we cast off and headed into the Minch enjoying the passage through the Minch in darkness. Around 02:00 it was time to retire to our cabins. Awaking at 06:30, we realised just where we were....

A round of the Corrour Hills

Read More
A weekend with pals on the Corrour hills. Dropped off by the train at Corrour station on the Saturday morning, we had a superb winter day crossing the tops of Carn Dearg and Sgor Choinnich with an overnight stop at one of the cottages at Corrour Lodge. The following day saw us return to Corrour station via Ben na Lap on the south side of Loch Ossian. A great winter day out!
