Beach Morning


With all the dyeing for Knockando Mill done, I took this morning off and, being a lovely day, we headed for Stoer Beach.Although our house is in Clachtoll, it pretty much equidistant from both Clachtoll Beach and Stoer Beach, but the latter is usually pretty empty whereas the former is always busy  […]
