Iain drove up north to Achiltibuie, Wester Ross, with Alastair and Dawn. The MacLeods are from Achiltibuie and the youngsters wanted to visit the croft to see where Alastair's ancesters lived as well as visit the site of the smiddy where William MacLeod, Iain's grandfather, was the blacksmith.

They took lots of photos as the weather was particularly fine - clear and cold with frost, snow on the mountain tops and low cloud in the glens.

On the road to Ullapool is Loch Droma in the foreground with An Teallach, the mountain in the background.
