Glenuig to Glenborrowdale.

27th July 2010

Awoken by a truly inspirational family - Colin and Sophie, with their children Rowan and Dougal camp and kayak their way around Scotland. Talk about a tent - luxury! I've got to get me one of those.
Such a wonderful, close knit family. Delightful children and adventurous parents. Better than tele and computers, kids!
A shower in the village hall and goodbye to the bus shelter. A grasshopper warbler trilling, more scotch argus and a dark green fritillary beside the road. Saw thre stone structures beside the road. Wonder what they were for and how old they are?
A day of quick showers and drier moments but little sunshine; got to the RSPB reserve at Glenborrowdale and walked the footpath up onto the moorland and back. Very little around and any birds suffering the mid-summer silence. Dark green fritillary on the buddleia at the car park noted.
Beautiful ancient oak woodland here too.
Finally met Vanessa Caldwell, the RSPB Golden Eagle information officer. A quick natter before a downpour.
