    Thinking of heading up there on Sunday or Monday. Anyone got any good tips for sites or wild pitches & places to go?

    we drove right out to the lighthouse, so have officially stood on the most westerly point of UK mainland

    As said above apart from maybe 50 residents (slight exaggeration maybe)you will be on your own, I found a good car park roughly half way out but can't give specific details due to memory!!

    That was where I saw my first golden eagle - came over the hill towards us - very close spectacular sight, keep your eyes peeled.

    I went there in 2012 following internet links to a Golden Eagle viewing area, only to find it closed in 2008!! :Doh:

    Worth waiting for though, I had to wait till a trip to Lewis for a decent view
