The flooded quarries of Easdale
We left from the village of Ellenabeich on the island of Seil in the Firth of Lorne.
Mist hung lowout in the Sound of Luing to the south so we thoug w had eter check our maps. We also duoble checked our tide times as we were heading for the fearsome Gulf of Corryvreckan.
A short crossing took us to the island of Easdale. As it was high tide we were able to us the swells to carry us over the lip of the flooded quarry to enter the deep calm water within.

After a little drift about the mist began to lift and we had a tide to catch!
