Winter sunset, playing in the Mull of Galloway race.

Today was just another day here at Can you imagine the hardship watching the winter sun set while playing in the tide race off the Mull of Galloway?

Earlier we had paddled the remote and seldom visited west coast of the Rhinns of Galloway. I had been so inspired by an article on paddling the Mull of Galloway, which is in the newly published Ocean Paddler issue 8, that Tony and I just went out and did it!

27km on a short winter day and we did not start paddling till 1130 am.

Just about as close to perfection as it gets!



  1. Hi Douglas that looks a fantastic trip you and Tony have had.

    I have just read your Mull of Galloway article in OP8 which I enjoyed very much but please could you include your usual fact box in any future articles?

    All the best,

  2. Hello Alan I am glad you liked the OP article. I did write a fact box but obviously there was not enough room in the magazine for it this time. I am writing a Galloway trilogy and there may be space for a fact box in one of the three articles.

    In the meantime, I will post a fact box here.
