Had an afternoon to kill after getting off the ferry from Islay. Grotty day, thought my best chance would be down Kintyre as a weather system slowly moved away. Mist not so much rolling in as firmly rooted. Waited and waited, eventually got a rain free but viewless bag, very wet under foot. Too late to bag any more Marilyns.Owen B26/08/2018
