During the month of June 23 I have been sailing and climbing amongst the Western Isles of Scotland during a really settled spell of weather. We visited Canna, Muck, Eigg, Barra, Vatersay, Pabbay, Sandray (a hidden gem), Hyskeir (very rare) and the mainland. The highlight was having the islands (other than Pabbay) to ourselves and a real sense of isolation and committment is felt there. Thanks to Jonny, Emma and Dan for crewing!
