Isle of Eigg – Inner Hebrides – Scotland
On The Sgùrr
The views from the top of the Sgùrr are breathtaking, it’s worth the climb. In the distance is the island of Rum, it’s a nature reserve and quite wild. I could imagine from it’s shape the time 60 million years ago when it was an active volcano.
Looking Towards Laig Bay
The beach on Laig Bay is also known as Singing Sands, when you walk on the beach you hear a high pitched noise, something to do with the quartz in the sand.
There are lots of rock pools to explore and because it is on the gulf stream you can find coconut seeds and other exotic things. When I was there a Portuguese man O war jelly fish had been washed up.
Ever Changing Light
Cottage – Cleadale
There are some lovely cottages and crofts on the island, quite a few are holiday lets.
I hope one day to get back to Eigg for a holiday.
