Westerdale and Loch More

Since I had to go into Thurso to pay some cheques into the bank, I thought I'd take the opportunity to come back via Loch More. On the way there you drive through Westerdale, which is the site of this mill:

There's another derelict building opposite it, which I wanted to explore, but getting to it involves hopping over rocks in a river and since many of them were still covered with ice (at 3pm!), I decided to leave that one for another, warmer, day.

This is Loch More bothy:

When it's been raining, the loch pours over the dam you can see on the left of the picture, but today it was disappointingly low. The light was lovely though:

And on the way back I saw a sparrowhawk hunting over the fields:
