Morvern (and a gate)

Gable end on promontory  with sea around. On Morvern's south shore, along the Sound of Mull, stands the remaining wall of the
Caisteal nan con
Hillside with folds of land and central house. A croft fades into the soft mist and the folds of the hills Tucked away to the east of the Ardnamurchan Peninuslar, north of the Isle of Mull and south of Skye, is Morvern. Although part of the mainland it is on the way to nowhere, and requires time to reach by single track roads. The area, with its beautiful shores on Loch Linnhe and the Sound of Mull, and remote valleys, retains its composure quietly aside from the crush of numbers that assail those neighbouring islands. Heavy grey cloud over sea, promontary with building. The Sound of Mull, from just above Lochaline, looking east towards Oban with
Ardtornish Castle in the foreground
Stone formation forming rough window. Stone wall shaped object in grass by road. Along the road, that runs by the Sound of Mull, on the south west of Morvern is this 'object'. In the view of it above the horizontal lines and the window, say man made, but it appears to be only natural rock Fissures in rocks. Gable end reflected in kelp filled water. Gable end on promontary. Along the road is the Caisteal nan con (Castle of the Hounds) which dates from the 1500s, but is not thought to have been in use in the last 3 centuries Cattle warning sign with rider and udder painted on it. Morvern artist turns cattle warning to mounted cow Two steamers on wide waterway. Two Caledonian MacBrayne steamers plying the Sound of Mull route between Oban and Tobermory Dark hillocks at valley entrance.

Trees framing loch with hills beyond. ...a sheltered and peaceful valley, here bathed in the early autumn light Distorted rusted gate not attached to its posts which have no fence. The gate (from above) to nowhere seems worthy of its own photo Lochan seen into the sun with hills runniing down to it. Same lochan, same time, but a 180 degree turn Lochan seen with sun behind, bluff to right. Lochan Doire a' Bhràghaid with its bluff Lochan with reeds. Reeds in the Lochan Gate with no fence and lochan beyond. Again - resisting that gate was not possible Vista of wide valley leading to sea and hills beyond.
