A five minute drive brings us to a little cove near the lighthouse at the Butt of Lewis, Stoth beach. Known to my grandchildren as pirates cove where they have had many an adventure when they visit. A beautiful sandy beach that is a sun trap in the summer months.
The ground as you approach is sodden from all the rain and is laying.
The path leading down is quite a trial to get down as the water is running down the hill.
I have never seen so much seaweed it is a couple of feet high, strewn across the rocks and the beach.
Deep breaths now as we climb back up the path watching where you walk as it is quite treacherous. Certainly easier to walk down than it is to walk back up.
Hope you enjoyed our little adventure. Back to the cottage for homemade bread, a mixed seed variety and some scrambled eggs collected fresh this morning...with a pot of tea of course.
See you soon.
