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.
