Flodigarry shore…

Sunday 16 October: Stones and seals! Silhouetted against the southern horizon, I thought they were rocks, until they began to wriggle…

We arrived at our ‘northern office’ yesterday, after driving more than 300 miles, from Dunbar to the northern end of Skye’s Trotternish peninsula. I need a leg stretch – I’ll aim for the shore near Flodigarry. The route down to the sea is clearly marked and easy; the shore itself is very stony – bouldery for long stretches. It would be easy to turn an ankle, and there’s no-one else around. So progress is very slow – just under a mile taking just under an hour! Admittedly, I stopped to watch the seals for a while. Ascent from the shore isn’t easy either – the ground is steep and uneven, to put it mildly. Possibly one of the longest short walks I’ve done for many years! Nevertheless, it’s been a most enjoyable outing, just what was needed after that long journey.
