A fair wind below Goatfell

We left Sannox Bay in glorious sunshine. The tight little low that had brought a front and SW/W winds had now passed to the east of us and the wind had veered to the NW.

This was just perfect for blowing us all the way down the NE coast of Arran. In the distance, Holy Island's Mullach Mor, 314m, rose above the eastern point of Arran

We made good speed under Arran's rocky ridges.

The ridges culminated in Goatfell, 874m, which is the highest peak on Arran.
