Cloud free Dun da Gaoithe augurs well for morning weather.

Walk underway. View west to tame end of The Wilderness.

This sheep managed to coup itself over. Never seen the like before but apparently they struggle to right themselves and should be rendered assistance if needed. This one was up and about after a minute or two of apparent confusion at being upside down.

Lovely 8) . I had fully intended to cycle along the road under these the previous weekend, but ended up on Iona instead, which wasn't a bad swap. Must make sure that I work these into any Marilyn bagging I might do in the area.
