I was a participant on an OCC trip last weekend out towards the Garvellachs. We’d lost the recent Scottish March heat wave, but although the sun was absent and the sky somewhat overcast; apart from the rolling practise at the end of the day, we did all stay dry.
I called this the “big sky” day because there were some fantastic panoramas, and though it was a neaps tide, still with some tidal movement and ‘lumpy stuff to contend it was a really enjoyable day.
Leaving Cuan Sound
Approaching Dubh Sgeir
…and on towards Fladda
Approaching Eilean Dubh Beag
Eilean Dubh Beag – Mike trying his best to break his boat ;o)
Then it got lumpy for a while and I stopped taking photos…
…until I found a ‘less lumpy bit’ to snap Colin on a wee surf…
…and an out of focus shot in the rough stuff
Heading back into Cuan sound
Stopping at Belnahua I turned my GPS off to conserve the batteries. Hence no complete GPS track, but this is the route we did…
