Firth Of Lorn : Ellenabeich to Dunbeg

Leaving Easdale Sound conditions were quite lumpy with a following sea and a good swell coming up the Sound of Insh. I passed on the opportunity to paddle across to Insh while I settled into the conditions – and my Nordkapp RM which I haven’t actually paddled that much.


Colin and I passed Insh and Puilldobhrain and everything calmed down enough for me to get the camera out.

This was the view on our backs down to Insh and the Garvellachs


…and looking up the Firth of Lorn to Kerrera and Bach Island, at that point a little over 7Km away.


We had one short shower, but for the most part any rain stayed over Mull


…and as the day progressed, shadows grew longer and the Autumn colours came out…


…and we enjoyed a reasonable sunset as the Ferry, now behind us, left Oban.
