Loch Eishort & Ramasaig Cliffs

After the Allt Dearg search and a previously unrecorded moorland tetrad, I went on to Loch Eishort and found pretty much all the plants previouly recorded in it – except Potamogeton praelongus (Long-stalked Pondweed), but it could well be lurking in the middle, and I found P. perfoliatus (Perfoliate Pondweed) which had not been found there before.

The cliffs nearby are spectacular:

Waterstein Head

Ramasaig Cliff

I only had time to cover about half a kilometre of cliff to the north of Ramasaig Cliff, but it was covered in good things like Silene acaulis (Moss Campion), Orobanche alba (Thyme Broomrape),  Juniperus communis ssp nana (Dwarf Juniper) and hundreds of Gentianella campestris (Field Gentian):
