After parking up on the basic camp site at Sheigra on the west coast I went
for what was supposed to be an evening 'stroll' north along the coast towards
Sandwood Bay. I kept on the higher ground which was a bit less boggy and
had better views, including this one of Arkle.

10.00pm, Sandwood Bay. I hadn't intended to walk as far as Sandwood Bay but it was such a fine
evening I just sort of carried on, and ended up on the hill to the south of the bay, Druim na Buainn.
It was just a short drop to the much improved track and an easy walk back to the road. I made
it back to the camp site at about 11.30 with just about enough light not to require a torch.
The sunset fizzled out to nothing though.
