Island 281 - Eilean Creagach, Talmine, Highland

Eilean Creagach is linked to the mainland by a concrete causeway.  It forms the outer part of the small harbour at the small village of Talmine on the west coast of Tongue Bay.  It is a rocky island topped with grass and thrift.  The island is round and about 100 metres in diameter.  Its highest point is about 10 metres above sea level.  The remains of a navigation cairn or beacon are located on the summit of the island.  The island's rocks are covered in pale grey/green, orange, black and white lichens.
