Look out for the Lewisian gneiss that makes up so much of the rocky landscapes in these parts and the omnipresent Golden Eagles – who have been so ubiquitous on this trip that they are becoming mundane!
Just to tease, we waited until the final day before taking in the lusciousness of Luskentyre.
The initial ascent is clear but steep from the car park and heading to the north east of the main road.
