The rain hammered down throughout most of last night but by morning we were able to have a wander about. The camp we'd used is a beautiful little spot and there are even some well-kept public toilets close by at a car park provided for visits to the cemetery, the beach, the site of the iron-age settlement and some walking routes.

We had a stroll around and, on the beach, found a trail of otter prints emerging from the sea and tracking off to some rocks (pic). They were still fresh, even where the sea was lapping in, so we figured we'd literally just missed - or even scared the creature into legging it for cover. 

We did the dutiful thing by retreating a good distance and then kept a scan on the area for half an hour. Close but no cigar.

At Stornoway now (coordinates) about to board the boat back to the mainland.
