The coral island of Loch nan Ceall, Arisaig

We continued on our way through the skerries of Loch nan Ceall as the wind began to pick up.

We came across another island and took a further break.

The whole beach was composed of coral sand.

The "coral" is actually the bleached skeletons of the red algae, Lithothamnium calcareum.
