Despite to wet and windy weather that has been predominating in Lochalsh lately, the autumn colours in the woodlands around Balmacara have been developing really nicely. In between the showers we have had the odd patch of sunshine which just brings the landscape alive with vibrant colour. The above view is looking from Strathy, just south of Plockton, towards the Isle of Skye, with the Cuillin Hills in the background. The mixed birch-pinewood forest at Strathy is amazingly varied in species and structure, with trees growing on the craggy slopes of Creag nan Garadh. The road wends its way through a small strath providing excellent views across the Inner Sound towards Skye. This is one of my favourite views when the light is right at this time of year.
