Camascoille

A run out this morning onto the wide expanse of the wild Ruhba Mòr. The highest elevation, a mere 90m. The plan was to get to the headland, Rubha na Còigich but the wind and tough going caused second thoughts. It would have been an epic. I was intrigued by a small collection of walls and buildings on the eastern side of the peninsula mapped as Camascoille. I expected ruined crofts but instead found three very well maintained cottages accessed by the faintest of paths across the moor. Whoever lived here permanently would have led a hard life. A few clearance cairns show attempts at cultivation and the way down to the rocky cove where a boat could be beached is steep.
