There doesn’t seem to have been much correspondence between the forecast and the weather recently. As I passed Lossiemouth, there was a much stronger headwind than I’d expected, and I had to shelter in the harbour for a bit before crossing Spey Bay.
I stopped at a campsite at Buckie and took a day off for much needed battery charging and laundry.
Continuing along the coast I passed many inviting small beaches. As I passed Troup Head, I was surrounded by hundreds of gannets circling overhead.
After some beautiful scenery, I stopped on a small beach in Cullykhan Bay. No paddling this weekend as very strong winds are forecast – I had to weigh down the boat to stop it blowing away during some fierce gusts today.
There are some more impressive sea caves here – you can walk right through the headland when the tide is out. I’ve been told that this used to be a popular spot for smugglers.
