Scottish anchorages

Camas Shallachain

This large and wide open bay has its scenic charms, in northerly weather. Apart from walking about on the very green grass and the extensive foreshore at low tide, there is nothing to do in particular. But wrong! Ard Daraich gardens are said to be spectacular — I think you need to book a visit (ph 01855 841 384). At low tide there is a bit of sand for sandcastles, and certainly children can find a lot to amuse themselves with. There is loads of drift wood so on the right evening good for a barbeque. The beacon guarding the way to the Corran narrows is an odd kind of art nouveau concrete structure (I wonder who designed it, there is nothing quite like it elsewhere). The walk up the glen towards Strontian is pleasant.
