A Chilly Walk

Me and Jo met up with Caroline and Myra this morning at Balevullin to go walking.  Will has devised a plan to walk the entire coastline of Tiree over the cource of the winter.  We're three weeks behind everyone else so Jo has suggested we try to catch up as soon as possible - starting tomorrow!

Boy, was it cold as we made our way up to Ben Hough and scrambled around looking for paths and tracks to take us on to Hough Beach and back to our cars at Balevullin.  I'd decided to turn up in running slacks and thought I'd made a serious mistake until we got going.  But running shoes and pebble strewn beaches do not mix, take it from me.

We were scheduled to walk for an hour but it actually took as an hour and a half to get back to the cars.  Thankfully, it stayed dry.

That's the way to start a Saturday morning.  Good company, good craic and a bit of a healthy trek.  Looking forward to the next outing already.
