When we left Unapool we decided to take the B869 road to Lochinver, a journey of twenty five miles along a single track road. Its amazing where curiousity may take you, the drive was awesome with many hairpin bends and gradients upto or indeed down to 25%. There was very little traffic using the road as we passed through unbelievable land and sea scapes dotted with tiny communities and isolated crofts. The passing places are really only to stop and let following traffic overtake or allow other vehicles to pass but when it is quiet you can stop for a quick photo opportunity. Around the half way point in the road we came to a parking layby at Dunbeg. Here in a passing snow storm in what felt like the teeth of a gale I stood looking in awe across Eddrachillis Bay with the small islands of Meall Mor, Calbha, Beag and Oldany Island stung out like gems in the Atlantic Ocean.
A place of sheer joy.
