(sorry for the lack of updates – it had been hard to find a decent signal recently)
After Machrihanish Beach, I paddled up to Port Bàn in the sunshine – a lovely campsite right on the beach with a warm welcome and excellent hot showers.
The next day was cooler and overcast and I continued north with help from the tide, dodging numerous islands and rain showers. I camped on the shore of Loch Beag, with a view of Craignish castle and just within earshot of the Corryvrekan.
Yesterday, the calm weather continued and I paddled through the sound on Luing, stopping to camp at Gallanach in the sound of Kerrera, just south of Oban. The campsite here is right on the water and has stunning views.
I’m pretty tired, so I’m resting today. The forecast still looks excellent.
