The great rock wall of Cnoc Loisgte, Gigha.

 Once we left the shelter of the skerries, we encountered a small swell on the exposed west coast of Gigha. The presence of swell, even in the middle of a large high pressure weather system, shows how lucky we were to have had calm enough conditions to explore the SW corner of Gigha.

 We now arrived at the great rock wall of Cnoc Loisgte, which translates as...

 ...the arid hill. Its unbroken ramparts stretched away almost as far as the eye could see. There were no landing spots either in front...

...or behind so...

 ...we paddled steadily on until...

...a light breeze offered some assistance.
