Knoydart Part 2

I haven’t got long for this post, so I’ll be brief…
We started the next day with a fantastic cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. YUM!

We then started out early on a long hike up into the mountains. As I have mentioned before, there are miles and miles of mountains between Inverie and the next town, so we just headed away from the sea into the beautiful countryside beyond.


I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…but one of the most hilarious parts of the day was when we got to a beautiful loch with a sandy beach. We were sat enjoying it when a load of Scouts turned up and went skinny dipping. We were meant to be in one of the most isolated places in the UK and ended up sharing it with a load of naked Germans! Made me laugh A LOT.





It got hot as the day went on and the climb up the mountain felt long…but it was worth it!
It was then back to the Old Forge for dinner. Josh had a seafood Linguine which looked amazing!
It was just one of the those beautiful evenings when the weather is perfect and you just feel totally relaxed. We sat on the pier and watched the sunset, and enjoyed being in what must be one of the most beautiful places in the world.





We were so sad to leave Knoydart the next day, but I’m so glad we went….maybe we will make the trip back there one day.

Would you like to live somewhere as remote as Knoydart?

  1. HA!! Naked German Boys. No picture? :) did they even see you? That's so funny. You and Josh must be having such a great bonding experience. It will help you guys when you enter the next phase of life. Great idea to plan such a great trip this month! And to answer your question, yes, my HUSBAND would love to live where no other humans live...so that means I'd follow him there :)

  2. Really beautiful place, but I don't think I could live there! Too dangerous!! haha, I'd want to be able to get to a shop and have stuff to do around me when the weather isn't so great...

    I'm really glad you guys are having fun though!!

  3. It looks amazing! No, I need to be around people so I wouldn't like to live in remote places. For holidays it's fine, but I'd probably go crazy after a while.
