Luncheon below a volcano.
We turned north east from the mouth of Loch Feochan and entered the Sound of Kerrera which would take us to Oban harbour.
The steep rocks that rise from the shore of the sound show much evidence of volcanic activity.
Indeed we could see that Dun Ormidale is a former volcanic vent. There is an Iron Age fort on its summit, which takes advantage of its natural defensive structure.
We decided to stop for luncheon on the beach at Port Lathaich below the fort.
A variety of post-prandial malts were sampled on the shore.
