The Falls of Shin. Sutherland, Highlands, Scotland, UK. [00:34]
Falls of Shin Waterfalls & Salmon Leap The water falls at Shin would be spectacular on their own, but the sight of leaping salmon makes them even more special and something not to be missed. Falls of Shin is recognised as being one of the best places in all of Scotland to watch leaping Atlantic Salmon, and the fish can be seen anytime between May and November, with the late summer months making this almost guaranteed. The salmon attempt to leap the falls because they are heading up river to breed, and to the place they themselves were born. In June 2011 we will be opening a major exhibition display which charts the lifecycle of the Atlantic Salmon and the importance of the Kyle of Sutherland area to its long-term survival. So be sure not to miss this new and impressive addition to what the visitor centre has to offer.
Moirlanich Longhouse Glen Lochay Killin Scotland July 21st [01:10]
Tour Scotland video of Moirlanich Longhouse in Glen Lochay by Killin. The longhouse at Moirlanich is an important and rare survival of a once common type of Scottish building. It retains evidence of its turf and thatch roof beneath the corrugated iron roof. This type of building was also called a blackhouse or byre dwelling. The building was occupied by at least three generations of a local Robertson family, tenant farmers and horse breeders

Loch Nuis and Ben Nuis, Arran, Scotland [00:15]
Making the climb up to the high plateau ( approx 1200ft) has its perks, I found a small beach at the eastern end of Loch Nuis where I could go for a dip, cool off and sunbathe for a while before continuing my hike.
