Durness at Last - Eilean Hoan RSPB Reserve - 27th July 2010

Bus back to near the spot where it picked me up; actually about a mile before it and a lovely cycle to Durness.

Explored Smoo Cave, even taking the boat ride under the arch and got to a historic area where a village had been part of the Highland Clearances, the Ceannabienne Village Trail . Now this excellent area had great information boards as I walked from one part to he next and I was surprised to see mountain avens flowers still in beautiful bloom.
Now out at sea from this point there's the RSPB reserve - Eilean Hoan and another reserve to view. Gannets, shag, fulmar, great black backed gulls over the island with a few twite nearby.

Along to the headland at the start of of Loch Eriboll and a beautiful double rainbow. A car stopped whilst I photographed it and a lovely Dutch lady came out for a chat, Marianne from Heel, Holland.
Camped beside the Loch - another day, more wonderful people met and another RSPB reserve seen.

Thanks Steve, Caldy and Angus!

Thanks aso to Barry and Lynn for their donation and also Brian from Newport for the same.
