|You can't help but notice these large wooden spools of pipe that are appearing beside the main roads throughout the region.|
Not surprisingly, they're connected to the broadband upgrade project that is currently underway.
The piping is being laid ready for the insertion of fibre optic cables which will bring high speed broadband to the NW Highlands.
This one is at the Rhiconich junction and will be where a spur is taken off to serve Kinlochbervie and the other settlements in the immediate area.
The project is still a long way from completion, however, with Kinlochbervie not expected to be connected-up until the end of 2016.
