A mysterious cleft at Gutcher's Isle
We left Balcarry Point and the expanse of Auchencairn Bay far behind as the flood tide...
...carried us eastward past the seaward cliffs of Hestan Island. The lighthouse is a recently built tardis design.
We then made swift progress across the mouth of Rough Firth and past Castlehill Point, where many oyster catchers were waiting for the tide to turn.
At high water, we entered a bay called Gutcher's Isle.
At the back of the bay there was a narrow cleft in the rocks, less than a paddle breadth wide. Where would it lead?
