Day dreams in the shortest day.

Today the sun set in Glasgow at 15:44. Tomorrow it will set at 15:45. I do not wish to sound as if I am wishing my life away but summer is now on the way!

This picture was taken in late June when the sun sets at 22:05. We left Glasgow after work on Friday and launched from Arduaine at 21:20. The sun is setting behind Ben More on Mull. That night we camped on Luing. The next morning we went out through the Cuan Sound to the Garvellachs. From there we went to Scarba where we watched the sun set over the great race that extends to the west from the mouth of the Corryvreckan on flood. Kieran recently wrote about this and other whirlpools.

The Corryvreckan lies between the islands of Scarba and Jura.

The summer panorama from the steep slopes of Scarba was simply stunning.

Sweet dreams are made of this.
