Flow Country,

Moine House through the wind and fine driving rain of a Flow Country afternoon with Ben Loyal as a backdrop,
The Moine House name derives from the Gaelic word mòine which means “moss” or “peat.” The house sits on the edge of a vast bog that covers much of Sutherland and Caithness, known as Flow Country. The long stretch of bog between the Kyle of Tongue and Loch Hope was often referred to as A’ Mòine, simply meaning “The Moss.”

This area was difficult and dangerous for travelers to traverse until the 1830s when the Duke of Sutherland had a road constructed. The Mòine House was designed along the edge of this road as a shelter for travelers at the halfway point of the roadway. (www.atlasobscura.com)

Hi Roger, a great capture here of this Moine House - the name I know already. The mono reflects the dark mood that often accompanies the leaden cloudy weather up here. In some ways this is similar to my house: www.ipernity.com/doc/1081863/51670012

Well done.

HFF, enjoy the weekend. Herb
