#7 of 10 island P30s. Couldn't be bothered to revisit island HP :-)RHW14/05/2018
5th Island and 8th tump of 12 on the 1st of my three trips organised with Farsain Cruises, having visited Eileach an Naoimh, A'Chuli, Garbh Eileach and Don Chonnuil. We headed for Eilean Dubh Beag but no suitable drop off points found on the first look due to low tide so we headed for Eilean Dubh Mor, dropping us off at a point just Nw of the shingle beach @ 69886 10805. Some of the boat members went for the island highg point first but i opted for Dun A' Ghaill, curving around the Shingle bay and then scrambling via rock and heather to the top, recording 35 @ NM 70035 10683. Descent Wsw then curving around to head for Eilean Dubh Mor...Dazingdale14/05/2018
