Sat run to Melvaig

Now Margot has come home again from her visit south again we three went for another training run. It was a poor forecast but Anna came round at 1pm and we set of for a long run down the coast. We stopped at the YHA (above) to shelter from a squall which only lasted a few mins.
The wind was against us on the way out, but the sky got brighter and we could see the beach at the appropriately called Big Sand (above).

After just over 9 miles we reached the Melvaig Inn, we treated ourselves to a nice coffee, then started our return trip.

The sea and waves looked really good today.

4 miles to go and we passed Longa Island and the campsite at Big Sand.

Margot and Anna in the distance approaching the campsite entrance, this is where the summer show is held in July.

Almost back, our village is at the head of the Loch, storm clouds over the mountains. Well it's Anna's longest run ever 19 miles we feel confident of our Marathon in seven weeks
