Ardvreck Castle, Loch Assynt
This is Ardvreck Castle, built on a small peninsula in Loch Assynt, in Sutherland.
It's a truly magnificently desolate place in November/December time when I was there - but that's exactly what we were looking for. I really love that part of the world (and not just for the desolation and the photography); the landscapes are incredible, and it's a very interesting part of Scotland - and so remote. It takes longer to drive from Edinburgh up there than it does to drive from Edinburgh to London - and I know which direction I'd rather go (most of the time)!
I took a lot of pictures of this castle, and this definitely won't be the last one I post.
