/ Polldubh - how long to dry?
Depends what you go for - some areas literally dry in minutes, other more recessed and tree-enshrouded bits take a day or two. Generally speaking, if it's not actually raining you should get something done. Hope so anyway; I'm headed there tomorrow.
I'll give you a progress report, but if you're not going for a week it's fairly irrelevant what state they're in now!
Nice and dry today, despite a brief hail-shower! Even bits that often tend towards seepage, such as the slab on Resurrection. It's really not been as consistently wet recently as you suggest - more like patchy showers than the classic west coast deluge.
Thanks! I'm in Inverness at the moment, where this weekend is the first dry days we've had in a couple of weeks...
