Don Reid, myself and a whole host of assorted others gathered on the lovely Isle of Eigg for Laurie Anderson’s Easter Eigg races, Saturday had us at the pier racing up the amazing lava plug of An Sgurr (covered in clag) and then on Sunday we were up in the north of the island at Cleadale for a wee sprint up Dunan Thalasgair (slightly less claggier) finishing on the beach. Don ran well on Sat and I felt pleased with my first run in my "alternate" gold and black colours of Lomond Hillrunners! Revenge of the Westies Gods was had on Sun when my legs simply refused to work when the black"W" was donned instead, and I just avoided picking up the wooden spoon. Never mind, it was a great fun weekend of spectacular races on a cracking little island. Well recommended to all for a wee visit from Mallaig. We stayed at the lovely Kildonan Guesthouse, and Don had a cute wee self catering kind of bothy.
