We cheated a bit this morning and drove down the track to the Haunn Cottages, as time was short. The sun was shining and I wanted to see the islands in the sun.
Farmer is in the process of gathering the ewes so there seemed to be sheep everywhere this morning.
Through the wooden gate beyond Haunn, what a view to the islands from here. Across sodden wet grass fields and down the steep path to the beach where Donald Sutherland was shot (in ‘Eye of the Needle’ filmed here in 1981).
Out on to ‘the flats’, all the while the distinctive shapes of the islands glimmering in the early morning winter sun. Every time I see them, I catch my breath. So beautiful.
This is a section of the popular Treshnish Headland walk, which follows the coastline around, with wonderful views out to sea all the way along. Coves, caves, rock pools, cliffs and sheltered spots. A special place all year round.
