Tour up to Durness, down to Ullapool and back via Corrieshalloch; a photo blog.
Diùranais/Durness. Specifically Sango bay.
Really enjoyed this stop on the journey. There was a stiff breeze and a few campers there. The beach had few people on it. We didn't travel much further as the toddler was getting very tired after tearing about on the beach for a bit.
Drochaid a' Chaolais Chumhaing/Kylesku Bridge.
We stopped for a short pause here. Bridge is smaller than I had imagined it would be but the curve is lovely all the same. It crosses over Loch a' Chàirn Bhàin. There was a lovely memorial to the folk who were training to use midget submarines during WW2. * BBC News article on the World War 2 submariners of hte midget submarines * Short Wikipedia article about the port itself * Wikipedia article about the X-Class submarines
Caisteal Àrd Bhric/Ardvreck Castle.
Shortly after stopping off at the bridge we met Ardvreck Castle by the side of the road. The walk to the castle is gorgeous, stony sand underfoot and the island is nice. There's a chambered cairn nearby as well as Calda House.

Some light reading on Ardvreck from Spooky Scotland here too.
I both love and hate this place. I love the pocket of nature and that it has super-steep sides. I hate that it has super-steep sides, that the bridge is only fit for 6 people and the viewing platform is see-through.
I enjoyed (the circuit)[https://www.nts.org.uk/visit/places/corrieshalloch-gorge] that brings you around the the carpark again. Paths were well kept and the birds were singing their bedtime songs.
The view from the highest point across Loch Broom is lovely and open. Thankfully there's a wee bench so you can take 5 minutes.
