In Ormsaigbeg, clouds covered the sky at 9.30, when the eclipse was at its maximum.  All the birds had disappeared except for one hungry great tit, and an eerie half-light covered the land

Then, at 9.46am, a small hole in the overcast gave us a brief glimpse of the eclipse.

This picture of the eclipse was taken a little earlier, at 9.32, from Kilmory - many thanks to Ritchie Dinnes for letting me have his picture - while....

....this was the eclipse at Achnaha, photographed by Stewart Pote - again, many thanks for the picture.

  1. Great photos! You did much better than the 'sunny south'. All that happened at 0929 under Winchester's low cloud was a short dull spell; then a beautiful spring day with clear skies arrived by 1100!
    I have resolved to try to be alive, and at the lighthouse by teatime on August 12 2026,_2026
    Clear your diaries West Ardnamurchan; lets have a picnic!
