Norse Mill and kiln

A morning for me - woohoo- when I could go up An Cliseam- and back to go to the beaches
Left Stornoway at 6 got to the start point sbout 7 and set off about half an hour later. It had drizzled a wee bit on the way and the cloud was sitting on the summit. Didn't hold out for many expectations as the forecast wasn't favourable also
It picked up though and there were some decent views all round the higher I got .
Followed the path mostly dry , until it kinda peters out. Went straight up for a bit but then got myself over to the right where a path going up and through the rocks is picked up.

The clag is coming

Went over the rocks to the large summit shelter and enclosed trig- and the mist came in!! Ah well it was better than I expected as it stayed dry and mostly clear going up.

Sat in the shelter for a wee bit then back the same way only going round the rocks thus time on the wee path.
Only myself on the hill until closer to the bottom I passed 2 groups going up.
Fairly straightforward decent Corbett today with great views.

Lots of war memorials on these islands and I visited a lot of them.
One I had to go and visit was the Iolaire memorial.
A series of info boards tells you the story as you walk down to the memorial
