Loch Assynt Things to Do: 2 reviews and 9 photos
It would be hard to take a bad picture of the Highlands in Scotland. Someone from VT wrote you would have to leave the lens cover on. Well I do agree - but Sutherland despite its name and dark troubled history, holds so much beauty here in the Highlands. Perfect peace comes slowly here as you drink in the atmosphere it eludes Loch Assynt is plain and simply picture perfect with its dark grey to black layers of hills and mountains and glorious vistas around the loch. I had been here before when the landscape was still caught in winters grip, but to see this prettiest of lochs in summer sunshine, casting reflections of the ruined castle into the still water was perfection for us. Thoughts of staying here forever fill your mind on a landscape which changed with great dramatic effect with the passing seasons. I did like it sprinkled with cold icing sugar but summer sunshine is the time to really capture its heart.
