From Loch Finsbay we took a detour to visit the Shaint Islands. These feature dramatic cliffs and rock formations. We had hoped to anchor, but seeing how many rocks and boulders were around we didn't fancy the risk of getting the anchor stuck. We therefore slowly floated amongst the birds - mostly guillemots, razorbills and puffins. In fact these were incredibly brave. Whereas all of the others that we've seen simply dive out of the way if you get too close for comfort, these ones were quite happy with us being very close. Perhaps they felt they had safety in numbers.
Back to Harris to anchor for the night we'd be recommended Loch Claidh. This is in a remote corner of Harris not served by roads, and we had the place to ourselves - well sharing it just with the grey seals and some arctic terns. A really peaceful and beautiful anchorage.
At sunset we heard a burst of regular splashes in the bay. It was repeated. I was amazed to see a seal jumping out of the water like a dolphin. I've no idea of what the behavioural reason was, but managed to get a blurred photo just to prove that we hadn't been drinking too much! The sunset itself was also beautiful, and repeated as due to the shape of the hill the sun set behind one promontory, then reappeared and set finally behind the next lower promontory.
