Our focus for the trip was to go to St Kilda, the weather forecast for Thur was good so the trip was good to go. Two boats make the trip several times a week if the sea safe, its 50 miles in the Atlantic and takes 3-4 hours. You feel very small in such a big rough sea.
St Kilda comes into view, with its own cloud, still over an hour to go.
As we head for the bay a large sea arch can be seen
To get ashore we all had to be taken in a small inflatable, this is to stop rats getting on the the island and causing problems for the large seabirds breeding areas.
I'm a 10 yro collieXNewfoundland. My humans found me in a rescue kennels 9 yrs ago &a couple of years ago they moved up to Gairloch in Scotland. They love it here. I didn't like it at first, missed all my old pals & walking haunts. Now, I'm used to it, have new friends & the humans are always at home, so I get a great walk every day.
Sadly, our dear Jamilla went to the kennel in the sky back in September. Osteoporosis in her spine, which she'd coped remarkably well with, became too bad & she lost the use of her hind legs.
She will be a hard act to follow.
