The last tennant of Riasg Buidhe, a spider.

We spied a ruined village at Riasg Buidhe on the NE coast of Colonsay.

It looked an interesting spot to explore, so we landed at a little gravel beach at the end of...

...a narrow channel, which in places had been hewn from the rocks to create a little harbour.

The rocks rose steeply from the shore...

...and there was only room for a tiny building which looked like it had been a store.

The only sign of life was this spider, which had spun its web in a nearby cave.
