Visit to Muck and farewell to Eigg 

It was our last day on Eigg so as we had the ferry back to Arisaig at 1630 we had time to get a short visit in to The Isle of Muck a 30 minute ferry trip away.
We left the Glebe Barn on Eigg in the morning getting our gear taken down into the harbour. It was a great stay and a wonderful place to be and I will be back ! As we left there was a new born lamb in the field taking its first steps. We walked down getting caught in a hail storm! We had time to get a tea in the cafe and dry out a bit.

The Shearwater the bost that brought us to Eigg was taking us to Muck and it was a bumpy ride in big seas but the weather was improving and we were soon in Muck.
What a great day we had in the sun it was marvellous. This is a stunning island with so much arable land! A group of chickens welcomned us as we wandered along the road and the fields were full 
of new born lambs! The views were stunning and the beaches as good as anywhere and in the sun they were marvellous! We had a break on the beach and beside us was a nest in the sand with four eggs! What are they?

It was planned that we would have lunch in the cafe run by the locals it was superb – fresh bread and local prawns and a lovely atmosphere. Soon it was time to leave and we had a sun drenched trip back to Eigg where we picked up more of our group then off to Ariscaig.

it was a great trip back
and ad Eigg became distant I could not beleive what a trip it had been! A winter ascent of An Sgurr the Singing Sands, the Massacre Cave and a great ridge walk at just over 1000 feet!

it had been fun great company, views, music, wild life and so many memories!

I will be back – photos to follow!
