a little piece of the Minch

-The Minch (Scottish Gaelic: An Cuan Sgitheanach, An Cuan Sgìth, Cuan na Hearadh, An Cuan Leòdhasach), also called North Minch, is a strait in north-west Scotland, separating the north-west Highlands and the northern Inner Hebrides from Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides. It was known as Skotlandsfjörð (“Scotland’s fjord/firth”) in Old Norse-

Loch Garvie, Scotland m.fauvet-TLC 14-10-15Loch Garvie, North West Scottish Highlands

interestingly enough (for us non-Scotts), this particular loch isn’t a lake nor does it hold freshwater. ‘loch’ appears to also be used as ‘bay’ and this more-than-lovely inlet is part of the above-mentioned Minch, itself connected to the Atlantic Ocean, a place well worth visiting. more than once.
