And so we embark on a 30+ km in the middle of the day. Idiots.

Old Man Storr is somewhere around here

large_P7209243.jpg
Beeeeautiful green

large_P7209245.jpg
Or is this Old Man Storr?

large_P7209247.jpg
Whatever, it's all pretty

large_P7209249.jpg
This was probably the most beautiful hike we went on in Scotland, and I'm so disappointed my pictures don't live up to it

large_P7209250.jpg
But I'm still going to bombard you with them

We had 8 freakin big hills to ascend and descend. You can see some of them in the background.

What an amazing texture

large_P7209265.jpg
Hmm, the sun is beginning to set, and we still have a ton of hills to climb. :(

large_P7209267.jpg
Those sheer dropoffs look harmless here, but they're pretty frightening to stand above

large_P7209278.jpg
The sea, the sea

large_P7209281.jpg
Yup, we went up and down that

large_P7209283.jpg
Yup, we're going up and down those

large_P7209288.jpg
They don't look so bad from this angle, but when you're climbing them, your thighs know

large_P7209291.jpg
We've come so far

large_P7209292.jpg
Do sheep who have good views make better wool?

large_P7209293.jpg
Uh oh, he's worried we won't make it

large_P7209295.jpg
But I'm still going to linger and take pictures

large_P7209296.jpg
Because it's all so lovely

large_P7209297.jpg
Staying to the non-soggy cliff edges

large_P7209298.jpg
It's dusk

large_P7209303.jpg
And that's the moon. We will continue our hike in the dark and arrive back at the campsite around one a.m.
