On Saturday we drove to Applecross. However, first, breakfast! The cool thing about Ardoch Bothy is that it had a fully stocked kitchen so I was able to get up early and make some coffee. Then, I'd wake Steve and start breakfast.
|Just what I needed...an opportunity to reverse the car on a cliff, which I did to allow a car to pass.|
|Look I can see a waterfall way over there!|

"Steve! I could be sitting on the same stool he sat on."
"I know! And just think, you might be eating with the same silverware that he used."
"I doubt that..."

|There were sheep in the road just like in the movies!|
By the time we got near the Ardoch Bothy, we realized that we still had a while before sunset so we decided to visit Strome Castle. Steve and I are so alike. We wondered around the ruins trying to guess what they did in there. :o)
|It's interesting to see what they put in their "concrete"|

At the end of the day, we relaxed in the warm bolt-hole and decided to play Monopoly. I was setting up the board when Steve said, "Ummm... this is very British Monopoly."
"What do you mean?"
"Look at the names of the properties..." hehe
It was an amazing day with an amazing ending. Beautiful isn't it? I told Steve that it was like taking a holiday in a painting. The photo below was not edited. :)
Just for fun:
Here is the full video of us descending the Applecross Mountains. You can hear me at the beginning of the descent (and video) say, "Whooooooa." HAHA. Enjoy the drive and Steve's filming. :o)
