Imagine you are at the edge of the sea on a day when it is difficult to say where the land ends and the sea begins and where the sea ends and the sky begins. Sea kayaking lets you explore these and your own boundaries and broadens your horizons. Sea kayaking is the new mountaineering.

A hint of Spring round the Little Cumbrae Island.
We set off from Bute towards the north end of Little Cumbrae.
It was really pleasant and almost warm.
We were surprised to see several yachts with sails up at this time of year!
As we approached the lighthouse on the Little Cumbrae, we saw a gannet and courting eider ducks.
We rounded the north end of Little Cumbrae, there is a nice shingle beach to land on. The mountains of Arran still looked wintry.
We made our way south to the Little Cumbrae Castle then back over the channel to Seamill. We were home by 5pm but what a great short winter day!
