Back from treasure island

by backpackingbongos

My dream of playing castaway on an uninhabited island was realised this weekend.  For the three nights that we spent on Scarba we had the island entirely to ourselves.  A fantastic way to spend a stag weekend with three friends and two dogs for company.  I have to admit with the wild weather yesterday I feared that we would be stranded for a few extra days.  I will do a proper write-up in the next week, in the meantime here are a few photos.
