Date: Friday 4th September 2009
The end of a week on Skye – what a washout. It was so damp we considered using mold and mildew remover in addition to reproofing spray on the waterproofs.
Another poor day forecast but the west of the island looked brighter so we took ourselves off to Orbost for a walk to Idrigill Point.
Park at NG 257 432 – a farmyard with organic produce on sale.
Simple walk out to Idrigill Point.
MacLeod’s Maidens again:
The rest of Skye being rained on (about the 52nd consecutive day)
Broom Moth Caterpillar – sure signal of summer’s end:
Fox Moth caterpillar:
Bog Asphodel seed-heads:
A reasonable walk given the poor weather elsewhere.
