Looking up the County Road


Looking up the County Road, originally uploaded by ccgd.

A sharp nip in the air this morning, made me look for the first snows of winter on Ben Wyvis, nothing yet though.

Driving out of Cromarty, you always get a view of the Ben, as you turn onto this straight along towards Rosefarm and Davidiston.

Laid out in the mid 19th Century, and maintained by the "County" Road squads, it has always been known - and I hope always will be known - as the County Road.

Very unusually for a road in the Highlands and Islands it runs dead straight for 5 miles (8Km) or so, allowing this vanishing point shot, helped by the wintry conditions.
