Richie, Thomas and I took a trip from Milarrochay Bay to the tiny island of Eilean Darroch this morning. Eilean Darroch is at the tip of Inchfad which is an inhabited island with a farm on it. The inhabitants of Inchfad regard it as a PRIVATE!! island and visitors are not encouraged.
I was absolutely shocked therefore when one of our party paddled ashore and relieved himself on the island.
There is a legend that Eilean Darroch once hosted an illicit still.
Today its just a wee island with plenty trees and wild flowers as well as some oyster catchers, sandpipers and other birds.
It was pretty choppy today and whilst we had enjoyed the benefit of that on the way out, on the way back it was a different story!
And just in case you haven’t noticed a shot of Ben Lomond here for a while…..
Richie took this one of yours Truly:
