Today dawned as quite a pleasant day, but it was soon looking a bit threatening. I had arranged with Morag, who I had walked with earlier in the week, that we would walk out to Waternish Point in the north of Skye and another friend Jackie decided to come along as well.
It’s a long drive but we parked the car and set off just as a squall was coming in so, once again, on with the waterproofs.
Just along from the car park there were lovely wild flowers, Bluebells
and King Cups.
The track out to the Point was across very boggy moorland but there were two ruined brochs and a village deserted at the time of the Highland Clearances. Finally we arrived at the Point where there is a lighthouse
with the outline of some of the Outer Hebrides visible on the horizon. We also saw a couple of seals waiting for the tide to come in.
Oh, to Jackie’s, and all our delight we also saw a Sea Eagle!
