With the forecast reasonably good for the day and talk in the village of the first gale of the winter coming in on Sunday, we seized the opportunity and drove out towards the lighthouse. Our intention was to take a fairly short walk to the headland called Corrachadh Mor, which is the most westerly point of the British mainland. The adjective corrach means steep or precipitous, and mor means large or great.
We left the car about half a kilometre short of the traffic lights at the entrance to the lighthouse, where there is a gate which let us through into open moorland, and walked along the side of the bay to the south of the lighthouse.
The fairies have been here too, building their rock art next to the little, white sand beach which can be seen from the lighthouse.
