NH5370 : Eilean na Faoileag

near to Coire Dubh [other Features], Highland, Great Britain

Eilean na  Faoileag
Eilean na Faoileag
Aptly named island, the gulls found me before I reached Loch Glass. A nest site for common gulls (Larus canus), out of reach of ground predators.

Something has happened to the loch, it now has a tidemark around it like a drawn down hydro reservoir. Also the 1:25000 map shows the weir and bridge near the outflow has been removed - has Loch Glass been restored to its natural state?
