Slioch & Loch Maree, Wester Ross

The Story Behind the Image - Slioch & Loch Maree

This is one of my favourite photos from a wonderful two weeks exploring Wester Ross in autumn. I was on my way south from my base at Aultbea, where I spent the first week, to Torridon where I was going to spend my second week.

On the way, I explored the area around Loch Maree, including Victoria Falls (not nearly as spectacular as the famous falls of the same name in Zambia!) and the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve, one of the very first nature reserves in Britain.

As I was driving down the loch I stopped at a parking area near Bridge of Grudie to explore the loch shore. I walked along the shore looking for a good vantage point to photograph Slioch across the loch to the north-east. I love this viewpoint for the beautiful mix of greens, reds and yellows against the backdrop of the blue waters of the loch.
