Page of the day
The page of the day contains a collection of jokes, tales and pictures.
The tales follow two people, well known in Assynt. The first is Coinneach Odhar Fiosaiche better known as the Brahan Seer who was also called the Nostradamus of the Highlands.
The other is the Reverend Norman Macleod sometimes called the modern Moses. He led his people from Assynt, first to Canada and finally to New Zealand.

There are two slide shows. The first shows views of the coast between Lochinver and Kylesku taken on a trip in the MV Statesman. The second shows the gardens at Kerrachar. Note that the resolution of these pictures has been reduced in order to reduce the time taken for them to download.
