Back in the Tourist Information office, I check the location of the Puffins again. I was in the right place last night but hadn't walked far enough down in the dodgy path in the mist. I would try again later tonight.
I came across a document produced by a local man about the Sango radar/radio early warning station built in Durness during the 1940's. I walked over to Leirinbeg headland to see the remians of this station and take photos. This is located between Smoo Cave and the beach by the campsite.
I slept well in the afternoon, and spent some time in the evening with my neighbours in a motorhome. They fed me a burger and some sausages.
The time for Puffin searching had arrived, so off I cycled once again to Balnakeil. On the way I was stopped by a French man who wanted to take a photograph of me on my bike - the lighting was very good here. From Balnakeil it was by foot across the beach along the Faraid Head headland. About half way long the beach I stopped to talk with a woman collecting shells, and then carried on to the dodgy path. This time I walked as far as I could dare and waited for a few minutes but not a Puffin was to be found. I would have to wait for anoher year.
On the way back, I walked with Kamilla the shell collector as she made her way home to Lotte Glob's pottery where she was working on a placement.
After a couple of hours of phone calls in the evening, I had missed last orders at the Oasis bar.
