SKYE WITHOUT THE MIDGES
A wet, breezy and cool morning on Skye. Today we did the lovely low level walk from Elgol to Camasunary then over to Kilmarie. After a few hours of light rain the cloud lifted, it went dry and the sun even appeared for a spell in the afternoon. Enough to enjoy the splendour of the black Cuillin from an easy walk. Not a single midge to be seen or felt this last couple of days on Skye due to the wind! This ranks as one of the best low level walks in The Highlands (and Islands!)
