Outer Hebrides trip Day 10 - Howmore to Castlebay - 37.21 miles

Another very windy day - and they were, of course, major head winds.  Oh great. Still, on I went.  I got a pretty late start - not sure why, just seemed to be faffing around this morning.  I was aiming for the 1pm ferry across to Barra, so needed to get a move on.

My plan of camping higher up certainly worked with keeping the midges away, but it was a very windy night and I did not sleep that well.  I was woken early with a strong sunrise, but managed to finally get to sleep again and actually slept until about 9 - which is quite late for me on this trip.
