Nearest place, seen from the landing point, where food is for sale.

I had contact with Mist Angeli, nurse, poet and children's bookwriter. She had the key of the house where poet Hugh MacDiarmid had lived. A primitive böd, just cold water, a piet stoof and no other facility for cooking. Dark and damp. But beyond a vast expanse of a rolling country, covered with a thick coat of moss, where you turn over your ankles. About Hugh MacDiarmid is a great movie on YouTube. I visited Wahlsay in June 2014 and slept four nights in the böd.
