We left the Outer Hebrides as we’d arrived, to the beautiful sound of bagpipes. This time the ferry would take us from Tarbert to Uig on the Isle of Skye and, from there, we drove back to mainland Britain, to stay with Jude’s good friend, Kate at the Waterside Café in Lochcarron.
We had hoped to visit St Kilda during our time on Harris, but strong winds meant our trip had to be cancelled. As a consolation, and for her own birthday, Judith arranged a trip on a speedy, inflatable boat to the small and very peaceful island of Canna, which lies south west of Elgol on Skye and just off the coast of the island of Rum.
It’s not often you get such calm seas and blue skies, which enable you to see the full extent of the Black Cuillin ridge, so we were very lucky. A traditional fish and chip takeaway, looking out to sea in Broadford, completed a perfect day ! 🙂
