We sat in the van overlooking the Loch as the sun set. No sign of otters, although they had been reported in the local area. Our sleep was disturbed by torrential rain that was being blown in from the sea. The wet weather continued throughout the day in varying intensity.
We set off in good time to view our plots of land at Highland Titles. As previously mentioned this apparently entitles us to call ourselves lord and lady. That as maybe, it’s a good way to ensure that tracks of land are kept for conservation purposes.
They look after injured or orphaned foxes, hedgehogs and wildcats. The wildcats are on the point of extinction loss of habitat and persecution but mainly cos they keep shagging domestic cats. For a wild cat to be classified as such it has to have at least %75 wildcats genes. We were taken on an escorted tour of the sanctuary and taken to our bit of land and the bit we had just bought the grandkids!
The grandkids and then us trespassing on someone else’s bit of land.
We headed back via a roaring stream
Back to Fort William in torrential rain to do some shopping and make our way back for the final time on this road to base camp. Stopped on the way to let Gordon have a stroll by the loch.
This is part of the Caledonian canal just past a swing bridge and on the way to Loch Ness and Inverness.
Tomorrow we have our machinery test . Unfortunately the weather is not looking too good. Hopefully that will mean that we get it over as soon as possible!
