On Thursday, July 11th we hiked a loop, leaving from Whiting Bay, a village a few miles south of Lamlash where we're staying. In 1978, traveling with friends, I stayed a few nights in a youth hostel in Whiting Bay (now closed) and did the forest part of this hike.
We hiked about 2.5 miles through beautiful forest to the falls, turned right for half a mile or so to visit the remains of an Iron Age fort, then backtracked to the falls and took a left to climb out of the forest and make our way to burial cairns the locals call Giants Graves that are figured to be 5000-5700 years old. Then the trail dropped steeply down to the start and we took a bus home.
After our hike Tom took Mike and Isaac fishing in his little boat, the Ivy May.
