Sanaigmore ramble

SAeA cool but dry afternoon, after light rain in the morning, saw six of us rambling at Sanaigmore. The cool northerly wind meant we didn't see a single butterfly - but then it seems to be a very poor summer for them so far. However, the flowers were good, while the birds were rather scarce.
