Trip to Inner Hebrides May 2017 (Day 6)

Day 6 – Wednesday 17th May

The weather was still very windy and fresh and so we decided to keep to the low land and visit the Coral Beach at Claignan just north of Dunvegan on the other side of the peninsula which we could see to the left of our holiday property.

The Coral Beach is not really made of coral but crushed coral-like seaweed; but the views were spectacular and we were also rewarded with plenty of  birds.

As well as oystercatchers, common sandpiper, ringed plovers, greylag geese, meadow pipits and plenty of gulls there were some excellent sightings of eider ducks and seals.
