Wester Ross, Scotland – DAY 6 (Victoria Falls, Gairlock, Inverwe Gardens, Corrieschalloch Gorge and Ullapool)


Wester Ross! Sound familiar? Well today we went to a place as far from Kings Landing and Cerci as you can imagine but for this Game of Thrones fan, the real Wester Ross is much much better.

Today we visited the Victoria Falls of Scotland (see above), the Museum of Gairloch (to the left)220px-Museum_of_Gairloch and had a great lunch and some coffee and pastries at The Steading Bistro.

After Gairloch, we continued on to the Inverewe Home and Gardens (a National Trust of Scotland property) (see photos below).


Then we photographed the Corrieshalloch Gorge. I wanted nothing more than to mount a horse and gallop straight through the gorge.  Don’t you agree?

In fact, we headed as far north as Ullapool for some much needed hot chocolate before returning to our Island Bay Cottage in Dornie.

It was a lovely and relaxing day for us all and, of course, yet another opportunity for a photo op or two. In fact, after seeing the Highlands this week, I’ve decided the phrase “photo op” must have originated here.


That’s all for now from Wester Ross.
