Shiant Islands - Outer Hebrides (Western Isles)
19th July, 2008
"We stayed on the Shiants for a week, ringing Puffins and others. Most of the time the weather was a little, shall we say Hebridean?! It was interesting camping in Force 8 winds. Photos were taken mainly during breaks in the clouds of course. But the islands are a fantastic place and I hope to return soon.
This is an almost aerial view of Eilean an Tighe from the heights of Garbh Eilean - we climbed up the cliff above the bar that links the two.
it was quite a hairy climb at times but well worth it for the view. We went on over Garbh Eilean to ring Bonxie chicks and then down the northern slope of Airghean a' Bhàigh where the main Puffinery is and back along the boulder scree of Carnach Mhor.
We camped at the back of the cottage but used it for cooking, eating - and drying out. We were very lucky that Adam Nicholson (the owner) joined us for the last 24 hours"
The Outer Hebrides are a chain of Islands off the North-West coast of Scotland.
