Just a quick update today as I am flying around the house packing for the West highland Way and throwing a few things at the computer at the same time.

Spent a relaxing afternoon down at Largybeg point south of Whiting bay yesterday.  There is a great wee crag there ideal for top roping.  There is no protection for leading, but the local outdoor centres have drilled holes on the boulders at the top to make setting up top ropes a doddle.  Nice for a day off!  We were serenaded by mating eiders, and shelduck, who squawked and whooped along the shore all afternoon. Aah the sound of spring!  Someone said that the male eiders sound like Frankie Howard.  I'm inclined to agree.
The views of Holy Isle from this spot are pretty good....
