We had about 4 hours on the island, below are the old stones walls and enclosures, the last people left the island in 1930. The army have used the island since 1958 and have a small base there to this day.
Such a lovely day, the island of Boreray in the distance about 4 miles away
Most of the island is surrounded by steep cliffs, don't go too near the edge !
The old village of traditional Victorian houses that could not survive the weather, the roofs doors and windows just got blown in. The old blackhouses that existed before were better suited to the winter storms even if they were very primitive.
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.
