Blogging from the Bog

We hired a wonderful, experienced (and progressive!) guide to haul us around the Western Highlands ("Westeros"). The second day was a coastal walk. Try a slog through a bog. Imagine a very uneven plateau of seaweed punctuated by pools of water with unknown depth. "Better you did na step there."

It did na matter whether the grade was up, down, or level. You still had to slog through the bog. The high point was a knoll from which we could see the Isles of Skye (Talisker distillery) and Lewis and Harris isles of the Hebrides (Gaelic spoken there) and Loch Ewe.

Then we went to Pool ewe, and river Ewe, and the estate of Inver Ewe. For another hike, thankfully in a pine forest.

And we visited a cool lighthouse with the grounds populated by Ewes.
