It was a great night and we had a few of the Glasgow University who are tough people and camping nearby the harbour they visited us in the Glebe Barn! It was a musical night full of tales and went on a bit as the weather changed outside and the wind an rain battered the Windows! A slow day followed for me and a few others and we had tea and cakes down at the harbour after waiting for the weather to brighten! A few left today on the ferry to get back to work and the sun came out and we took the well marked path to the caves!
There were lots of flowers about and I am sure we saw the famous Isle of Eigg bluebells/ harebells on the walk! The flowers are out and even the early orchid was down by the sea along with primroses in abundance! It is a magic wander along the fields near the coast well marked and always a view of the great cliffs of An Sgurr dominates.
A few then walked over to the Cathedral Cave and other round for views of the Sgurr. I headed back along the track and had a chilled afternoon! The weather was fine and the hills nearly bare of snow !
Others ran, cycled and wandered all over and the weather broke later in the day there were a few wet boots but with the fire on it is a magic place to be! I had an early night and today we leave the weather looks rough and I hope the ferry runs! If not such is life on an Island!
What a magic trip an other incredible place od stunning beauty and great people. The winters day on An Sgurr was one in a million! How many have climbed An Sgurr in a day like that! One of the locals Creg Charr took a photo of us heading into the hills! Thanks Creg for the use of it!
Thanks Eigg “the Island that kept on giving”
Thank you Tasmin and Stu what a great place one of the best I have ever stayed in!
The weather is still bit wild now we leave late this afternoon weather permitting – we will see!
