Baile-na-Cille, Uig Sands, & aspiring Katie Morag

The Callanish Stones were our first destination on our last day at Baile-na-Cille. Cake for lunch followed at Loch Croistean coffee shop.

On our way back to the house we decided to return to Reef to show the Viking water mills to Jacinda, Julian and Florence.  Although we had been warned that it might be a bit wet underfoot, we managed the path reasonably well – at least at the start. However, Florence’s decision to attempt a rather ambitious jump over a puddle (against her mother’s advice to take a different route) ended rather messily. I managed to catch Florence at the other side of the puddle but then lost my footing. The pair of us toppled over and fell into the bog for a complete soaking. Julian witnessed the whole comical episode: if only he had had his camera ready. Fortunately neither of us were hurt - just extremely dirty.

I took this photo after dinner by which time we bog ladies had bathed and changed out of our filthy clothes.
