Blue Skies

The weather is doing its best to make up for last week, with blue skies and temperatures rising to 25C during the middays. This view looks across the Millburn near where it passes the telephone exchange and fire station towards Beinn Seilg.

The variety of heather called ling is coming in to full flower, and the slopes of Druim na Gearr Leacainn are steadily turning purple. This view of the ridge is from the Glebe Hill cottages in Kilchoan township, with the lowland of Ormsaigmore township in the foreground. The neolithic cairn Greadal Fhinn can be seen towards the left centre of the picture.

In neighbouring Ormsaigbeg township the crofters are taking advantage of the fine weather to make the last of the haylage which will help keep their animals through the winter. This picture was taken two days ago: by this morning the crop was neatly baled in plastic sheeting.
