Another fantastic walk on Eigg (although I preferred the other trig walk). Was on my own until my descent when HOARDS of other walkers, including a large walking party, passed me - used the opportunity to get a rare summit photo, however, as retraced my steps to the summit. Not a tiring walk, but, for vertigo sufferers like myself, quite scary as once you've climbed through the magic staircase to the south side of the massif, it's quite precipitous. The red dots on the stones make navigation easy. Lots of dead Magpie Moths (and some alive ones too) en route, but little else wildlife wise. Look out for mermaids in the lochan with the island - I've been told they're there!

Saw Dark Green Fritillaries (lots of them, none posing for the camera though), Common Blue, Golden-Ringed Dragonfly and Chimney Sweeper. It was MAGNIFICENT.

Not all that easy to find. I walked from the east end of the island round to Tarbert where I crossed to the north and made my way east again - in scorching sunshine, so not very pleasant, but the views to the Outer Hebrides and Rum and over Canna and Sanday are spectacular. Descended down the valley rather than continuing eastwards due to extreme heat. Ice cream at farmhouse. Golden Plover en route.

Gradual climb to summit. Fantastic views to paps and Sound of Islay and west to lochs Fada and Leathann. Islay has had no rain for weeks so I've never seen the ground as dry. normally it would be a very boggy walk. But today it was very pleasant with Golden Eagle, Marsh Fritillary and Red Deer en route.

A rather non-descript hill but I wanted to bag this trig on my last stretch of Islay's coastline - from Glen Astle to Kintra. Very boggy and added an hour and a half to my walk, but was worth it. Several Red Deer does greeted me at the trig and I descended to the lochs to the rare sound and even rarer sight of Grasshopper Warbler. Later on at Glen Astle my best ever views of Golden Eagle. 12 out of 10 for my overall walk but trig itself deserves lower rating. Recommend this long walk though (cars needed both ends)

One of my favourite Islay walks. Have only visited trig once though when working with Springwatch last year and boss wanted to go long walk. Typical! The only day during the three weeks that it rained torrentially and howled a gale. We got soaked but enjoyed the experience. Didn't bother taking camera so will take it on next trip!
