It’s been hard to find a signal, so I haven’t updated this for a while.
I’ve covered some distance to try and make good use of the settled weather.
After Camas Mor beach, I paddled in more calm weather past Greenstone Point, and on past the outside of the Summer Isles.
It looked sunny on the Summer Isles, but rainy further inshore. I continued to Clachtoll where I stayed at the friendly campsite right by the beach. The next day, the wind was stronger but behind me so I pressed on northwards.
Conditions seemed choppy after so much calm weather, especially approaching the Point of Stoer and as I passed Handa Island, making it exhausting and hard to rest on the water, so I was glad to arrive in the shelter of beautiful Sandwood Bay.
Yesterday was another calm day, so I paddled round Cape Wrath. I timed it to go round near the start of the flood and it was nice and calm.
I stopped at Durness where I’m enjoying a rest today rather than battle a headwind. Looking at the forecast, I may stay here for a few days, but I can’t complain about the weather after being able to paddle every day I wanted to while on the west coast of Scotland.
