The Mull Box

Oban Canoe Club paddle from Ellenabeich/Easdale, across to Mull via Insh, NE along Mull’s coastline and then cross to Bach Island West of Kerrera before returning to Ellenabeich. Personally this was a big trip and a step up the ladder for me with a not insignificant open crossing of approx 6Km. The Mull ‘box’ actually turned into the Mull ‘Triangle’ :-

Beautiful waterfall at Port na Muice Duibhe.



Then things got rough on the crossing back, especially with the swell re-bounding off Insh – “Solid 4 Star”.  So unfortunately no photos….

Thanks to Colin for organising the trip; and to Gill, Rowland and Gus for the company and a great day out.
