Early spring 2013 we revisited the north west coast of Scotland with purpose in mind. Staying at The Torridon Hotel situated on the edge of Loch Torridon we came together as a family to enjoy the natural world of the rugged west coast, and appreciate life for a week at a slow pace. 10 years previously my father-in-law passed away, and his ashes were placed in a cairn made by the family overlooking Loch Torridon. Weathered over the passage of time it was time to rebuild and revisit this beautiful resting place. The weather was peaceful, views spectacularly dramatic, castles old and crumbly, and lots of brisk bracing hill walks.
