There's always a magic to Camas nan Geall. This comes in part from the magnificence of its amphitheatre shape, with the bay its stage; in part because it is always so quiet and peaceful there; but also the place is pervaded by a deep sense of history. It's such a pity that so many people stop at the car park above it, look at the view for a few minutes, and then climb into their cars and hurry elsewhere.
