Little Gruinard Beach Wester Ross

The spectacular Sail Mhor (767m) and Sgurr Fiona  1060m (An Teallach)  on route to  Gruinard Bay.  Today I am bagging Monroes through my camera only!

I love a beach and this is a belter.  Glorious pink sand as far as the eye can see.  These steps  are welcoming me down.

Gruinard Island opposite the bay where scientists experimented with anthrax in 1942 as they were worried about an impeding biological attack from the Germans.  Despite attempts to disinfect Gruinard Island, the spores left by the experiments kept the island in quarantine for 48 years. In 1990, the Defence Minister, Michael Neubert, declared there was no longer a risk to health and removed the warning sign.  Think I might just admire the view rather than visit

Little Gruinard River flows from Fionn Loch to Gruinard Bay. This is the boundary point between Gairloch and Loch Broom parishes. This area has been granted a special area of conservation because of the great Atlantic Salmon found here
