From Fladda we headed for Rubha Fiola, a tidal islet at the north end of Lunga. This is at slack water. On the full ebb you can find a swirling whirlpool here.
We then followed the west coast of Lunga. The summit of distant Scarba was lost in glowering clouds.
At last, after battling into the wind, we caught sight of our next destination; the fair isle of Guirasdeal.
Guirasdeal is one of the smallest of the Slate Islands but its rocky little summit is 32m high and makes one of the finest viewpoints in the area. Not only that, it was time for lunch!
