Conditions were ideal for walking, with sunny intervals and a cooling easterly wind. The air was wonderfully clear, perfect for photographs.
As we sat on the front terrace for lunch a kestrel appeared and balanced in the air in front of us. Kestrels are fairly regular visitors along Ormsaigbeg. What we'd really like to see is one of the merlins which, we've been told following the publication of Peter Southern's pictures, have been seen fairly frequently on Ardnamurchan Estate land.
