This small selection of shots was taken on my way north towards Durness on Saturday morning. The first one is of an old house situated on top of a small knoll near the main road at the north edge of the village of Elphin in Sutherland. I always fine these old buildings very interesting and this one has regularly attracted my attention in the past, being loctaed in a very prominent position. As you can see from the second shot it has a splendid outlook to the west towards Suilven.
There are always nice little architectural details on these buildings that provide excellent images as can be seen from the next two shots. The first is a close up shot of part of the roof of the old house above, while the next is a window detail of an old tin house on the other side of the main road.
The final shot in this selection is a classic touristy shot of Ardvreck Castle on Loch Assynt with the lower slopes of Quinaig as a backdrop. This was taken using my Sigma 70-300mm zoon lens from a fair distance. Not one of my best shots but one to remind me that I ought to revisit this site for a longer duration, preferably during the quiet season.
Still more to come from this trip over the next day or two.....
