Grulins and Lochens.
Eigg June 2000
Yes, we're talking to you, Mrs and Miss sheep!
On our way to the old ruined houses. It was very misty!
Getting a bit bogged down by the mist.
Just like gorillas in the mist... Errr, just sheep instead.
That must be Muck over there.
The mist was starting to lift again, and moved off as quickly as it came down.
The most isolted bothy on the whole island.
Bits of old ruined buildings.
I rather liked this little stone bridge.
Still a bit more mist hanging around over there.
Dad looking upwards.
Much easier to see Muck now. Turning into a really nice day!
Me eating a bit of orange.
Janie attempting to signal to Karen and Simon, who were out on their little yacht.
Dad attempting to see them through his binoculars.
Dad with Muck in the background.
Some more bits and pieces of ruined houses.
Me standing in the doorway of an ex bothy.
Along one of the walls.
Looks a bit like Dad's trying to rebuild the house here!
Suddenly it started to rain, so me and Dad set about building a temporary shelter.
Great! Dad and Janie sheltering in our little bothy renovation job.
The rain let up soon after and we left our little shelter behind.
Hmmm... still looks a bit like it might rain again.
Dad and Janie wandering off back to the Glebe with me going off the other way to take a closer look at the lochens.
A nice bit of good old fashioned lichen.
Another view of Muck.
Quite a way up the side of the hill, another little ruined building. Maybe an old sheep shelter?
Me with the mountain rising up behind me.
Luckily this dragonfly was staying put, as it took about 5 or 6 attempts to get this picture right!
On the top down, and the mist was making it a little difficult to work out where I was going.
One of the little lochens.
Down on the side of the lochen. It was really peaceful here.
Me and the lochen again.
The stream running away from the lochen went underground here, and you could here running water but couldn't see any.
Little snake monster I got from a Kinder Egg with Chie resting on a rock.
Down across the valley that must have been formed by the stream running down from the Lochen.
Lovely rolling hills.
Same lochen again, with the Sgurr in the background.
Not sure what I was so jolly about here!
Little snake monster goes for a swim.
The Loch Eigg Monster! Just need to rub out my hand!
Here's Eiggy (?!) again.
Last lochen picture I think.
More of Eigg's marvellous landscape.
On my way back down to Galmisdale now.
A view of the little extra bit of island on the side of Eigg.
Nearly back down to the Glebe now.
