We awoke today to fantastic light over to the high mountains stretching across to Torridon. I wasn't for rising but the view was too good to stay in bed. I grabbed the camera and tripod, set up in the garden of the cottage and took what shots i thought were decent.
There was no breeze and the morning sun had heat in it. This was going to be a nice day, you can just tell. We both felt we should go for a run whilst it was so peaceful and quiet so we changed into running gear and set off. From Gairloch we headed off to Big Sand about 4 miles away and then reversed. There was the odd person about as we passed the SYH but nobody about at the Sands holiday park. It's a lovely site this, more like a golf course than a camping spot and with plenty of shelter if the wind gets up. I presume this is where you set up Louise.
Back at base Sheila and Dorothy made a cooked breakfast before we set out to walk to Kerry bay and back. About another 4 miles. We should have booked a boat trip for today because it was a stunningly, clear, hot day. There were even people in the sea. I think they must have been accompanied by psychiatrists because i know i would have to be drunk to go in.
A coffee and cake at the wonderful Mountain Coffee company went down a treat and a quick look around the shop, so full of interesting books, maps, pictures etc. We headed back to base and spent the late afternoon soaking up the sun. Well it is for the first time this year.
Again sorry for the lack of images. They just refuse to load at the moment.
It's now 5.30pm and we are talking about what to have for Tea. The midges are just starting to give us grief and the red dots are appearing at a rapid rate. The sun is losing it's heat as it's now dropping down just to the north of Skye. Cloud, grey cloud is filtering out the rays and it's looking like we have had the best of the day.
More tomorrow. Forecast not too good.
