Travelling east out of the village, shortly after the 7 mile milepost and just after one has crossed the small stone bridge over the Allt Torr na Moine, there's a neat parking place on the left (marked '1' on map) where one can leave one's car for a very pleasant walk around Camas nan Geall. This is what we did yesterday.
clachan of Camas nan Geall, a settlement which has probably been on this site for a minimum of a thousand years. The remains of three of its old houses have now been cleared of bracken and brambles by AHHA, our local heritage group, so their structures can be seen.
Now, here is a confession. This blog's pictures are usually taken using various Panasonic Lumix cameras, machines which have proved quite excellent, but yesterday the latest acquisition suddenly, and without warning, announced it had run out of juice and was going to sleep. So, for the first time, the three pictures above here were taken using an iPhone.
These two CalMac ferries, seen during the afternoon, are the Lord of the Isles, left, and the Hebrides, the latter on sea trails after repairs following a recent collision with the harbour wall at Lochmaddy, North Uist, on 26th September.
