Wild Moment: Robin PerryPublished: 7th December 2017
A picture showing the mysterious wall on Suilven in the Trust's Journal prompted Robin Perry to dig out an old photograph of his own
I have only once been up to Caisteal Liath summit and that was in 1956. The wall existed, but only sheep could comfortably pass.
When Moira Bradley (a young lady also staying at Achmelvich youth hostel) and I reached it, we had to assume ovine dimensions and crawl through.
Her picture shows the wall and passage, with Meall Meadhonach beyond. We didn’t venture that far.
Regrettably I haven’t found a picture of Moira. I believe she came from around Dumfries.
