I found the political events of the last week in the UK very unsettling, and I imagine many other people did as well. A pretty awful decision has been made by the electorate, and various bad things may follow. Several heads have fallen, and we don’t know what will come next.
I recently wrote about the recent history of Ethiopia. There have been famines in Ethiopia every ten years for the last fifty years or so, plus several wars. The most recent famine, where many thousands died of hunger in the south east of the country, happened quite recently. That kind of thing puts recent events in the UK into perspective.
We were up north when the aftermath of the Referendum became obvious.
J.D. and his family had booked a chalet at Altandhu, in the Coigach peninsula, not far from Achiltibuie, so Lindsey and I took the campervan up there, parked it at the Port a Bhaigh Campsite, and spent some time with them.
We went most of the way up Stac Pollaidh. It was too windy to get all the way to the top.
The boat trip around the Summer Isles was very enjoyable. Tanera Mor, the island where we landed, used to have over 100 settlers on it, and even a school. Now, there are a few holiday homes for rent. Above is a ten minute video of our trip.
