WD0002 - Highland Kirk by Loch Airlort near Arisaig, Highland, Scotland

August 2012 - On the Road to the Isles, just before Arisaig when driving towards Mallaig, lies Lochairlort, a small community by Loch Airlort. Taking the A861 towards the peninsula, you will find this view, looking West. The day was heavy with rain and the dark clouds forming above us gave a sense of tension and electricity.

The small church is hardly visible from the main road to Arisaig, but here it gives a sense of perspective to this desolated landscape which the Vikings once were familiar with. It feels so lonely and lost... Wild, unspoiled, iconic Scotland.
