Pix Of The Day: What Is Scotland Like, Then?
CREDIT: © Andy Bannister/LakeDistrictDesktops.com
WHERE: Northwest Highlands, Scotland, UK. WHAT: mountain & seascapes.
MAPS: Coillegillie; Slioch; Cove; and NWH. Thumbnail clicks pop-up larger images.
Another recent enquiry was, "What is Scotland like, then?" This was from a young lady who wanted to go on an LDS (Mormon) church mission from southern Utah. Although the missionaries may suggest places where they would like to go, the allocated destination is decided by the church authorities rather than negotiated.
The question in return was almost, "What is God like, then?", because of the infinite and unknowable nature of both answers. I am sure that if the choice and the allocation are one and the same, then all parties will find benefit. For a partial answer to the Scotland question (the other question being beyond the scope of this web site), we turned to a bonus gallery on Andy Bannister's LakeDistrictDesktops.com, where we had recently been viewing some images of mainland Torridon, and the nearby Isle of Skye. Left to right the pictures are of the beach at Coillegillie, south of Applecross; Slioch over Loch Maree; and the coastline northwest of Cove on Loch Ewe.
As always you may visit Andy for free download of these pictures in a format suitable for desktop wallpaper. New pictures are added to the English lake District section every other day. The recent crop contains a couple of pictures that we thought so good that they have graced our own desktops for several days.
