Island 264 - Lon Liath, Arisaig, Highland

Lon Liath is a very small tidal island in a beautiful sandy bay at Portnaluchaig 2 miles to the north of Arisaig.  There are other bigger islands in the area that are not named for some reason.  Lon Liath is no more than about 50 metres in circumference.  It is covered in grass and is only about 100 metres from the mainland.  There are lots of pools filled with dark brown water.  There are also a few flowers - thrift and dandelions.  It is accessible for at least 2 hours either side of low tide.
