The third island of the day with Sea Harris. Bagged with Alex, Jon, Jim and Martin before taking in the TuMP Beinn na h-Uidhe.

Fantastic views, can see the whole island. Unforunately misty and cold while we were on the top of Ben Raah. We were shadowed by a Golden Plover on the way up and saw a Golden Eagle on the way down. Also deer with a fawn. A great day!

It's got to be a 10! My first view ever of St Kilda. Also the Flannans, not to mention great 360 degree views towards Luskentyre and islands in Sound of Harris. Wow! Golden Plover accompanied me and called all the way up and Dunlin flew in at Loch na Learga. Quite a slog, but worth it. Camping for a few days on the island.

vgc, metal cap wide raised letters - fine hill & island despite the post-Castaway hype: the trippers tend not to reach the summit

Next up after Scarp. Anothe beauty. Great island and a pleasant easy walk over from the pier by the school house. Views were as you would expect 260m up in the middle of a sea loch!
