There had to be some way of making something of Achnasheen on a windy and rainy day. So after waiting in the little tea shop by the station for a shower to pass (which it did - only to be followed promptly by another!), I went down to near the River Bran where the gorse bushes were in full bloom to take this panoramic photographed being watched by some quite bemused sheep. A patch of sun just about managed a brief appearance on the hill above Achnasheen itself. Achnasheen - now is that a reference to the lack of sun or the lack of alcohol here...
