A beautiful day to be heading up Loch Fyne, Scotland’s longest sea loch.

Although attractive to look at, the shoreline here combines rocks that are just too steep to walk on safely with impenetrable rhododendron thickets which necessitate some inland detours.

I didn’t apply the midge repellent under my watch strap. Won’t be making that error again!

A small fire on the foreshore leaves no trace after the fire ring stones are scattered and the tide rises to finish the job.

    When breezes still and evenings warm,
    as moisture lolls and midges swarm
    a simple flame’s the surest way
    to keep those buggered bugs at bay.

      But what shape’s cleared out by the heat —
      how high, wide, conical, and neat
      this haven from affliction which
      is hollowed from air thick with itch?
