Ardvreck was attacked and taken by the MacKenzie Clan in 1672. They also took all the Assynt lands. They lived here at the castle until 1726 when they built a manor house nearby, Calda House, which also now stands in ruins after a fire in 1737.
Another gorgeous view on the way to Ardvreck.
The mountains were hidden by the mist.
The gorse was in full bloom.
Although I wasn't able to get any pics of the red deer at Assynt, here are some other Sutherland deer from further north.
Thanks for checking out my pics!
