Cresthengan Bay, and Crear, Scotland
We continued our trek, stopping to have lunch and take pictures at the summer resort café at Port Ban below Coulaghailtro. What a magnificent place to live with pastures for cattle and sheep, salt water beaches, mountain views on the islands across the Sound of Jura, and delightful burns. All my favorite places to be in God’s creation!
Continuing north we came across the cascading burn that John Campbell of Kilberry had described as the boundary between his estate and the one in Crear. We could see across open pasture lands bordered by stone fences and the stone walls that were all that remained of former tenants’ homes. I could imagine my ancestors here, their love for the land they worked, their family, and country. A bit of Queen Anne’s lace was picked as a souvenir to cherish of this incredible landscape.
