Perhaps just after a rainshower and there are a few of them forecast for this week.
There hasn't been very much new to take photographs of this last few days. Add that to the variable broadband speeds that we've been experiencing and the result is a lack of posts. Sorry!

where did the noise come from, what was that noise? I could imagine what it was thinking but we were sitting in the car and it couldn't figure out where we were
... so it flew away and the next photo was just the railing

Look how low the water is here. The ice, although melting where the water is flowing, was really thick and solid. There is still snow on the hills but some snow has already melted and it is difficult to see how there is sufficient to fill the loch up to normal winter level.
Perhaps the rains will start soon.

This is the hydrodam on Loch Quoich, part of the Glen Garry hydroelectric scheme.
The water level was well below normal because the water was frozen into the surrounding hills as snow and ice. When the warmer weather arrives, the snow will melt and the loch will fill.

I can see why people lived here, although remote, it has good access to the sea and a flat area on the shoreline where it would have been possible to grow crops.
Sheep still graze the steep hillside.
