I have cycled around Loch Eriboll twice now and it can be quite an ardious journey. Sometimes known as Loch Orrible and it is understandible when the weather is not as favourable as it is in this picture.
Here is a view of the near island in the loch "Ard Neakie", only the sand bank cawsway prevents it from being an island.
"Ard Neakie was used as the terminus of the Heilam Ferry, which crossed the loch to the - now gone - Heilam Inn on the west bank of the loch at Portnancon. The ferry ceased operation in the 1890s when the road around the loch was completed, but the ferry house built in 1831 still stands, though sadly increasingly derelict. Ard Neakie is also notable for the four large lime kilns built in 1870. The Reay estate produced large amounts of lime here and on the nearby island of Eilean Choraidh and loaded it into ships".
