Whilst on holiday near Ullapool on the west coast of Scotland a few weeks ago, we enjoyed a boat trip out towards the Summer Isles.

Below is a shot of Ullapool taken just as we were leaving the harbour.
Who's watching who? The seal seems to be enjoying our visit
Grey Seals and Common Seals (smaller)

Rocks, water and mountains make me happy.

If Scotland enjoyed endless hot sunny days all summer long you can be sure our beaches would be nothing like this. There would be high rise hotels all along the shore and rows of sunbeds and sun shades, and of course lots of people. So OK, we get chilly winds and often grey skies, but we also enjoy peace and quiet. These pictures were taken at the end of June. How many people can you see on our beach.
