Picture This: Forget When You Are

by Keith Savage · 5 comments


Coigach is a land of emerald and sapphire set in ephemeral bands of golden light. Dusk falls high upon the clock at midsummer in these glimmering, northerly latitudes. It is long past bed, but I am waiting with the rabbit kits and lambs for the darkness. The Summer Isles drift from Loch Broom’s mouth, wild and vacant, drown mountains, as two red deer descend to the water to stare at the archipelago’s titans, Tanera Mòr and Tanera Beag. Night never quite arrives. The clouds stretch their purple fingers and the air turns to a gloaming nether where we become shades of ourselves, flickering between ages like a candle flame in the islands’ mistrals. 

I am connected to something, somewhere, somewhen.

once again I love your imagery . so looking forward to our 25 days in Scotland late May early June but wish it was much longer having a hard time deciding where to spend our time

Thanks, Jeanette. May/June is a beautiful time to visit. If you need help with the itinerary you know where to find me.
