Sea kayakers get fresh on Loch Uisg, Mull
After a long, hot portage, the kayaks found themselves in the cool fresh waters of Loch Uisge. In the distance, Craig Ben Lodge nestled in the woodland between mountain and loch.
A little road ran past the church and alongside the shore at the east end of the loch.
A golden eagle soared over the steep slopes above.
An approaching horizon line signified the end of the loch. Our destination, Loch Buie lay hidden, 16m below us, in the gap before Beinn na Croise, 503m.
All too soon, our delightful sojourn on Loch Uisg came to an end...
...and our next portage began.
