Views of Bla Bheinn, Skye

On Monday night I wild camped for the first time. The ground felt like concrete beneath and the sound of fishing boats chugging out to sea seemed to go on all night long... and then there was the sheep from 4am!

But the lack of sleep was more than made up for by the outstanding views of Bla Bheinn. As it was also the longest day, it seemed to take forever for the sun to set - I'm sure there was a lovely sunset, but we were too tired to stay up late enough. The midges also surfaced around 9pm so in the tent we remained until morning!

We had intended to hike up Bla Bheinn but as we arrived the cloud was settling in and as my other half had tried to do it before only to have to retreat because of the cloud, he didn't want that again. So we drove over to do a walk near Sligachan instead.
