Last one.....

...from the Hebrides for now. Today has been the usual last day of running around buying foodie bits to take back with us. Oatcakes, Salar Salmon , Hebridean Smokehouse Pate and also some of their hot smoked salmon, and Scallops from Kallin Shellfish - all delicious. We have in mind to do a "smoked Salmon tasting" for some friends in due course as we now have three different types of the hot smoked salmon and it will be interesting to see how they compare. 

It's now time to get things packed up and sorted out, whilst enjoying the last of the fantastic views and general peace and loveliness. As I type this I am sitting looking out to my right at the view above - although it looks completely different at this time of day. There are Common Gulls, Lapwings, Greylag Geese and Oystercatchers in view on the small headland you can see sticking out into the Loch, and occasionally a Buzzard passes by. What you would think of on the mainland as quite a strong wind is blowing (over here it's just classified as a breeze) but it's not enough to be a problem. The fire is laid ready for tonight and once we're packed up we will head out for a meal, on to the pub for a last beer with Alastair & Elisabeth, then back here to make the most of the final few hours. 

Next one from me will be from home......
