Nightfall over the Sound of Jura
As we left the MacCormaig islands, the clouds lifted just enough to reveal a dusting of snow on the Paps of Jura.
We landed on the rocky Tayvallich peninsula to catch the sunset, which proved to be a bit of a damp squib after all the crackers we have enjoyed recently.
To the north, the summits of the hills of Morven (where we had been the previous week) were still catching the last of the sun.
We made good use of the brisk tides in the Sound...
... this and the fact that the nights are now getting shorter meant we arrived back in Carsaig Bay before it was completely dark!
