Let's do lunch, in Soay Sound, St Kilda!

 The Cuma was lying waiting for us in the shelter of Soay and...

 ...we boarded her for a first class lunch break.

 It is difficult to imagine a more impressive spot for lunch.

This view shows Stac Dona in the foreground with the tall slender Stac Biorach and Soay Stac behind. Boreray can just be seen in the distance between Soay Stac and the headland of An Campar on Hirta to the right. After lunch our route would take us to Boreray, right through the heart of Soay Stac!

 Soon it was time to get back in the kayaks and... farewell to Cuma, just as a pod of six dolphins cruised by.


  1. Beautiful Photos! How cold do you let it get before packing away the kayak?

  2. Thank you Mack, fortunately the Gulf Stream means we can paddle all year despite being as far north as Labrador and further north than Moscow.
