Thrift on Beinn Uraraidh
What a wonderful walk past lots of peat cuttings, fishermen, lochans and plane wreckage to the summit of this beautiful mountain. OK, so it's not as beautiful (in my view) as the unnamed mountain south-west of Beinn Uraraidh, but there are fantastic views from up here.
As well as the usual Tormentil, Lousewort, Milkwort, Heather and Cotton Grass found in this terrain, I was very surprised to see patches of Thrift growing up here. Perhaps blown up from the east coast of the island?
