Our final day on the island was very windy, but bright. I watched the waves breaking on the distant small isles, some crashing as high as the cliffs at times. Hail showers were frequent.

After lunch, we decided to have one last visit to Glen Seilisdeir. Just as I was getting into the car I heard a Tawny Owl hooting from somewhere close by. A Raven gliding alongside the cliffs.
Parking up at Glen Seilisdeir, I spotted two Golden Eagles soaring above, one of which was a juvenile, it's white wing patches visible.

The following day we headed home, but not without incident as all the ferries on the Oban-Craignure route were cancelled because of the strong wind. We were lucky enough to just make the sailing due to leave Fishnish within seconds of us arriving. They let us on and the ramp was up and we were off before I had a chance to shed a tear! So it was home via Fort William and the joys of the A9. Hopefully, it won't be too long before I return to 'Eagle Island'.
