Great day out in Harris with Joseph. We headed up to Loch Chliostair Hydro Dam for a swim. Cracking all round views. Will be back again for sure. 09.11.2013
Joseph, Ciara and myself took a walk out to the Hydro dam in Harris (Loch Chliostair reservoir). Joseph and myself had a wee swim across the loch and back. Ciara got attacked by midges. Beautiful scenery.
Fun times at Coll beach with Donna, Ciara, Joseph and Ali. Bit of swimming and kayaking today. 01.10.2013.
Fantastic day out with Donna, walking over the hill from Hushinish to Cravadale, then swimming over the short channel to Scarp for a look around. Came back the same way. Then went to camp at Nisabost beach and we had a wee swim on Sunday too.
