Around and About Ullapool

It’s a terrible thing when you can’t remember anything about a field trip, albeit 19 years ago.  I know it was centered around Ullapool, on the west coast of Scotland, and I know there were some sites that we visited that had something to do with the Assynt Window.  Other than that, I draw a blank.

Our accommodation for the week long trip, was a group of chalets at Ardmair, outside Ullapool.  I think this could have been a clever tactic by our profs to ensure that we didn’t spend too much time at the local pub 😉

Slightly further on from us was the Ardmair campsite.  A beautiful setting indeed.

And now for some token geological photography.

Obligatory road-side cutting.. Pegmatitic intrusions...

There's a thrust in there somewhere!

    1. I think you would like it too! – I’m not always sure I do the scenery enough justice; there is always so much to cram in! The beauty of Scotland is the freedom to roam just about any where you want to. There are public pathways through the most magnificent locations.. and contrary to popular belief..it is NOT always raining! 😉

Been there? Done that? Seen it? ...do tell!
