"For me the most beautiful loch in Scotland" Loch Assynt by scottishvisitor

Loch Assynt Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 20 photos

A Summer Stunner

During our Summer trip to Sutherland it was never our intention to revisit our past haunts. It had been raining hard for just one day of our holiday so we decided to head west to see if the sun was shining there. We were not disappointed - glorious summer sunshine was here at Loch Assynt. This place was busy, for the Highlands anyway, people were sitting on deck chairs, fishing in the loch or just like us - caught spell bound in this unsurpassed scenery. I'm so grateful we took the time to revist this most beautiful spot, I did say it was busy, but you could still feel a sense of isolation as if this whole experience belonged to you alone.

    Stunning photography!! Beautiful views of the Loch and surrounding mountains while enjoying such pretty wild flowers! Perfect.

    Loch Assynt looks isolated and wild--its beauty probably preserved due to this feature--I can see why it calls one to look, absorb and tarry a while...

    Breathtaking scenery in your wonderful pictures. Pity it's hard to get there. Doubt if my husband agrees to drive that far.

    Wow, wonderful!! I love how dark green the grass (?) on that little island is, and I want summer now.... Haha, postbus transport, together with the mail sounds great. Driving (me), well, it would maybe kill me, haha :-)
