Last time I visited Auchmithie was a couple of years ago, in January. What a difference to see it in August on a warm, sunny day. The dramatic coastline was bathed in beautiful sunshine. I never fail to be amazed at natural features - arches hewn out of rocks and caves and passageways. But even on such a bright, enticing day, danger was very present. It's easy to forget in seductive sunshine that our coastlines can be treacherous and unforgiving and must always be treated with care and respect. It is no bad thing that enjoyment is tinged with awe.
