No more details from me, but good luck if you go. I would go if closer to the weekend although it only seems to haul out for one (?) tide at any one location. Basically a twitching nightmare...

cheers, alan

He left and was seen swimming about near loch clash early afternoon. No sign of him just now. Suspect he has gone to find somewhere quieter to relax!

gone already!

Walrus still at Polin Beach, Highland, (NC191590) at 14:40 then swam out to sea. In recent days it has been nearby at Oldshoremore Beach (NC200586).

Just looking at other beaches on Google earth, perhaps Shegra Beach, then as a longer shot Sandlewood Bay would be worth checking. I see there is capewrathcharters.com on 01971 521359 if it is worth chartering a boat to search around the coast. Not sure how you get to some of these beaches otherwise, some are very remote.

If it goes any further north into Cape Wrath then there is no vehicular access there so you are scuppered.

Its not being very co-operative.

ABOUT SANDWOOD BAY:

Secluded beachbreak, open to most swell, reached by a 5-mile walk. Couple of small reefs, a rivermouth and much potential. Regarded as one of Britain’s finest beaches and the most remote beach...

hmmm, is this true? Could be yesterday's news I think

cheers, alan

I've just looked at the FB posting which was posted today and the photographer saying "Spotted on Oldshoremore beach today"

An hour later, poster replies "Sunbathing he has been around for a couple of days. Has left now hopefully he comes back"

Make of it what you can, and hope for Steve he does linger.
