A gallery of photographs taken in and around Coigach to let you see what to expect in this fantastic setting. You may note that the sun doesn’t shine every day – but that despite that the area can be spectacular. There’s lots more photos of Coigach online, and if you’re a Facebook follower why not take a look at the ‘Achiltibuie Appreciation Society’ page for more photos and more about the community.
