Sunday was overcast and dreary not really conducive for a stroll across the machair. But after listening to the morning church service and over indulging with lunch, we both felt it was a good idea. The wind was blowing and underfoot was very wet but it was worth a little bit of discomfort. The views were indeed spectacular. We took a left turn quite near our cottage down a single track road and this is what was at the end of the track. We have been there before but it is still a delight to find this hidden treasure.
The bothy was amazing, it really does look like it has been made from an old building, maybe an old blackhouse dwelling. What a place to sit and watch the sea and enjoy the natural surroundings. The sea was wild creating some great waves, I must admit I wouldn't have wanted to be out on a boat.
As we were walking it was quite apparent that the seasons were changing. There was a lot of brown where the thistles were changing colour from the vibrant green and purple.
