The Castle on the Loch

The Castle on the Loch
Our journey took us past Castle Ardvreck, built around 1590 on a rocky promontory on Loch Assynt, Sutherland by the Clan MacLeod. The mountain in the background is Glas Bheinn.

Although the castle is mostly in ruins some walls are still standing after all these years.

The song I have added is by Journey - 'After All These Years'

Superb shot!
The musical link is totally new to me. I've never heard of the band or singer. I admit that I took myself out of popular musc for a couple of decades and concentrated on classical and jazz. When I felt I wanted toi come back to it, of course I knew nothing!

Thank you very much Andy. Really appreciated. I really enjoy finding music to fit the subject or mood of my photos and probably listen to more music now than I have done for years although I too missed out on a number of years when the children were growing up. When they were in their teens it was mainly their music playing in the house so nostalgia for me is music from my teens and from theirs and not a lot in between! Have a good weekend

Hi Carol

I really like this. Follow the winding road to the castle.!

The new looking safety fence (aka 'Vehicle Restraint System') certainly emphasisies the edge of the road as we follow it into the distant mountain

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend

The interaction with any exuberant natural landscape of beauty generates imprints on the soul that last for a long time, perhaps all of life, even if one returns to his urban existence. This landscape has that wonderful quality.
