We are so lucky with the skies and the sunsets at Treshnish. In mid winter the sun sets over towards the Treshnish Isles, and by mid summer it has crept all the way up Coll and almost sets directly opposite Treshnish! It has made its way past the headland so it means we can enjoy a walk down to the old boathouse and watch it go down towards the Isle of Gunna, in between Coll and Tiree.
Last night Farmer and I took the dogs down to retrieve a piece of Treshnish history I had found near the boathouse the day before, but accidentally left there – it was part of an oar, wrapped in leather which was held in place by dozens of tiny copper nails. Curlews were calling from the headland as we walked back up the hill.
