Date: Thursday 25th May 2017
Weather: misty and then fine
We’d spent the beginning of the week at the Oban YH, getting out to Kerrera, and then meandered up to Mallaig via some hills and Arisaig.
Thursday was billed as an improving day so we struck camp and wandered to South Glendale to walk around the SE tip of South Uist.
The path is a little sketchy but decent walking. We had 2 targets, the first was to take a look at a little tidal island – Eilean Dubh, which had caught our eye on the map.
The sun came out and we had a pleasant walk watching a variety of birds making the most of spring.
We crossed the beach, heading for the car. We swithered as to whether to get the tent and return to the beach, but we had plans to move north up the islands so we carried on.
Nipped over to Eriskay and had a shower at the ferry terminal, then drove north to Loch Sgioport. We had used a nice pitch there in 2015 and fancied re-using it. We’d half hoped to recoup our “Leave no Trace” credentials by recovering a Ti tent peg we’d left there, but alas it was not to be found.
