Little and large on the road north to Appin

Back at the beginning of February, we took the great road north again past Buchaille Etive Mor, 1022m, and through the dark recesses of Glen Coe beyond.

At Loch Linnhe we turned south and entered the lands of Appin which were controlled by the bold fortress of...

Castle Stalker sitting on its little island. On the bigger island of Shuna beyond, you can just see the tiny remains of its rather inadequate neighbour, Castle Shuna.

Soon we were kayaking out into the Lynn of Lorne...

...where we set a southerly course.
