You'll get them if you come over to Scotland. I saw one hit a jay behind Lochnagar last year. It was really spectacular, feathers exploding like a shell-burst. There's lots of reasons for coming to Scotland - do a winter skills course, the Euro's in your favour. Climb Beinn Mhor and Hecla on South Uist, you'll think you're in Connemara with a 10th of the population, views of St Kilda and more chapels than a dogs got fleas. Go up Ben Nevis by the tourist path. Visit the Woollen Mill in Fort William..ok maybe go to Killarney instead.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.
