Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin, September 1979

September 1979. The venue - Inverness. The purpose - a week's holiday of coach tours of the North West Highlands, courtesy of Highland Omnibuses. The first tour was a Sunday afternoon drive into Glen Affric, stopping at several points along the north shore of Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin - the first loch in the Glen and part of the Affric hydroelectric scheme.
