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.

The last tennant of Riasg Buidhe, a spider.
We spied a ruined village at Riasg Buidhe on the NE coast of Colonsay.
It looked an interesting spot to explore, so we landed at a little gravel beach at the end of...
...a narrow channel, which in places had been hewn from the rocks to create a little harbour.
The rocks rose steeply from the shore...
...and there was only room for a tiny building which looked like it had been a store.
The only sign of life was this spider, which had spun its web in a nearby cave.
