Great swim from Lemreway over to Eilean Ewart, this time camping towards the Loch Shell end. The sea is teaming with wildlife and so is the air, even saw a sea eagle leave it's perch as I swam along the coast of the island. I would have camped on the small peninsula looking up towards loch shell but with the fish farm activity, it kind of spoiled things, so I plumped for a small bay instead looking out to the minch with stunning views out to the shiant isles. Had a wander about before getting a fire going, dinner and drinks. The rain started early on, so retreated to the tent but got up a few times during the night to view the night sky. Had a cracking swim back to the jetty on Sunday morning again following the coast of the island, then across between the 2 small islands and following the Lemreway coastline back to the jetty.
The island has fantastic history surrounding it, some of it involving Bonnie Prince Charlie, which can be read here:
