Despite waking to a dusting of snow on the ground over the past few days the weather cleared this afternoon and provided a glimpse of spring to come. I was out exploring the old golf course behind Kyle of Lochalsh where the local government has reinvented the area for walkers and for picnicking. There are meandering paths that will take you from the parking lot down to alcoves by the water or over to viewpoints where you can watch the big ships rolling in and out of Kyle with views spanning from the Isle of Skye and up towards Loch Carron and of course the famous Skye bridge. At the highest point in the park is another viewpoint and several picnic tables where you can watch the world from above while you enjoy your lunch. It is great to see improvements to public spaces and hopefully this will become a well known stopping point for travellers of this region.
