Arrival, lunch, and preparation for the gabbro and bog...

After paddling, on a calm sea, just 9 kilometres from the little fishing and crofting village of Elgol, we entered a land that time appears to have forgotten...after working on it for a very long time. 

It's a place of legend, mystery, magic, and (to quote a friend) pure, "mind-blowing" exquisite beauty.

It's said that "Skye is conclusive proof that, sometimes, God was just showing off." As a working parish minister, I concur. 

After first (and only!) lunch, we prepared for a short hike in boot-sucking bog, and gritty gabbro - to the loch, secreted away.


  1. Looks like an amazing paddle n beautiful scenery. I'm sure God was showing off as she does all over the world with amazing creation. You're very blessed to get to explore such amazing places.

    1. It's a magical place, Linda. Thank you for that. Warm wishes from us both.
