Blew old boots in the night but we were hunkered down in the sand dunes at Eoropie Beach ..Hetty was pointing into the wind so not much buffeting as the gusts came in ..
This mornings adventure is a walk on the beach …A long beach fringed with high Dunes and low cliffs. Seemingly very popular with surfers ..Two turned up pre dusk last night ..No one there this morning .. Then a lady dog walker appeared but that was it Golden sands ..very strong breeze .. The surrounding machair (grass)is the home of lots of rabbits .. They were enjoying the sunshine lolloping around in their dozens ..
Next port of call is the light house at the Butt of Lewis at the very top of the islands ..A place I had identified as a good overnight sleepy spot but the wind was too strong ..
GPS 58.5107610, -6.2544080…
A nice hard standing for future ref
I got out to take a photo and had to hang on to Hetty’s wing mirrors to stop being blown away
5 minutes down the road we found our wild camping place Port Nis
Sheltered from the SW gale ..John is Seal watching on the beach and the sun is shining …
View from Hetty ..Wild camping …loving it ..
