Hebrides Countdown 2013...
This is the view across to Lochboisdale from North Glendale - one of our favourite short walk/climbs. An easy plod up a small hill gets this lovely view - and we'll be getting a better view of Lochboisdale this year too as this is where we will be departing from at the end of the trip, heading back to Oban on one of calMac's longest crossings.
We've started chatting about the various walks we fancy doing - MrEH is still banging on about climbing Eaval but you can rest assured that you will NOT be reading about that one - well, not from my perspective anyway! We quite fancy doing it's small humpy next door neighbour - Burrival - again though, we thoroughly enjoyed that one last year. We both quite fancy having a go at South Lee - we climbed North a few years ago and the views are just astonishing, made even more special by timing it so that the ferry was just coming in at Lochmaddy as we reached the top, gaining me some really unusual shots which have gained lots of approving comment on every website they have been posted on! That one relies on the right sort of weather though - fairly cool, as there is a long walk-in which can leave you tired before even reaching the base of the hill itself! As ever, the planning is half of the fun - we may end up doing all, some, or none of these this year, we'll see!
