Finally with the rain cleared, sunny skies coincided with a weekend free to get out sea kayaking… However the forecast strong winds led to a change in plan and we sought shelter in the Lynn of Lorn.
We launched at Port Appin and were soon making headway for Eilean Dubh
The snowy backdrop was captivating, here looking across to Beinn Sgulaird (937m)
After crossing to Lismore, we eventually made for Eilean na Cloiche for an extended lunch break, hidden from the wind and basking in a sun trap. We caught two friends on the VHF who joined us shortly after our arrival.
The sun continues to shine, and what cloud there had been melted away. The afternoon journey back to Port Appin was just spectacular.
