Wind, sun and snow through the Laudale Narrows, Loch Sunart.

We had enjoyed an extended luncheon in the shelter of Garbh Eilean but when it started to snow we decided it was time to return.

The east wind was still blowing and we had a stiff paddle across the bay to...

 ...the shelter of Rubha na Daimh.

 There were still blinks of sun through the heavy snow bearing clouds as...

 ...we approached Laudale House which can be rented by parties of up to 20! Laudale House was built by John Campbell of Ardslignish starting in 1755 and finally finishing in 1790. Then we entered...

 ...the eponymous narrows through which...

...we passed into the inner loch. The flood tide had just turned in our favour but had not yet built up sufficient speed to create wind over tide conditions.
