Schools Hebridean Society
This campsite was one of many set up by members of the Schools Hebridean Society which introduced young people to the islands for over 20 years from 1962. It had its leaders, assistants, followers and devotees. Memories are countless, but there were comparatively few articles published about the Society. However, its records are intact and proving a source of reference on its website. The blog of Vince Smith, Crest of a Wave, carries some evocative photographs (such as the one below) and personal reflections on the Society that are worth reading.
