Reminders of a more dangerous past.
Sometimes beauty can hide brutality and here, in Poolewe harbour, during wartime, was the assembly point for the convoys that would make the long, desperately arduous and dangerous journeys through the arctic to the russian port of Murmansk.
on the North Western coast of Scotland, as far from enemy spotter planes as possible, the harsh brutality of war was prepared for.
To defend them were gun emplacements on the sounthern boundary,the headland of Am faithir mor. Today at the extreme tip
of the headland reminders remain.
