Anyway, managed a few sketches in Lochcarron itself. This first one looking west along the shore, but omitting Slumbay for a change. I had spotted this black hill standing out against the rest of the background (mostly grey and cold-looking), so I had a go at it.

Another sketch was Seabank Cottage again. It was too windy to sketch it from the shore, and I've already done that a few times, so I found a view looking east back towards the cottage.

I did another sketch yesterday over at Kishorn - my favourite place - but sketching was curtailed by a heavy shower of sleet. So this one is a bit rough and ready. Saw an otter here too - it just scooted across the road in front of me - I was amazed! The gloomy light was somewhat strange, making the distant hills of Skye look bigger than usual and I wanted to try and capture this.

Anyway, it's pretty cold now and snow is forecast. Roads already seem to be bad elsewhere, and I have to drive back to Musselburgh tomorrow. So I'm looking forward to a bit of fun, haha....
