The rhodendrons were at their best. So were the midges and we did not linger to be devoured. Sea Thrift on the rocks at Gairloch Beach. More Sea Thrift. Pippin will takes some cleaning before being allowed back in the house by Jackie.

They were late this year, as were other flowers. We have never seen such density of bloom on the Scotch Broom. The view out the front windows of the cottage. The rocks on the south part of Firemore. The rocks on the south part of Firemore.

Flyte coming to check on me... We had some glorious weather... This area just above the beach is called the "machair". The wild thyme was just coming into bloom. It will soon make the area a sea of purple.

One last stroll for Jean and Flyte before heading homeward.
