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’ :-
Leaving Ellenabeich around Easdale…
Crossing from Insh Island to Mull. The cliffs of Aoineadh Mheinis in the background.
Crossing from Insh Island to Mull. Looking North (ish)
Pulling in for lunch at Port nan Crullach, near the entrance to Loch Spelve.
Continuation along Mull coastline.
Gus, Rowland, and the Garvellachs.
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.
