A day trip to London

Steam Tug Portwey
Having discovered that the steam tug Portwey Photo was offering public trips on the Thames, I booked four places and our party departed Worcester at 0730 to catch the 1100 sailing.

After two hours or so we disembarked and saw a couple of items of interest on the Isle of Dogs Photo Photo and...

Then a sweaty reascent to the road, and in the car up to Cuaig....

For two years, I've intended to return to Rona to finish off the few remaining green squares. This weekend brought settled fine weather, a favourable tide (low in the early afternoon for those low-lying rocks) and, not least, no personal commitments. So I set off out along Loch Torridon, arriving at Rubha na Fearna Photo an hour or so below low tide. Unable to find Murchadh Breac immediately, I put in briefly to get an accurate grid reference - and found the rock, still half a...
