Loch Spelve and its mysterious pier.

We paddled west into Loch Spelve and passed the few scattered houses at Croggan before arriving at...

...Croggan pier. I have no idea why such a large pier would have been built in such a remote spot. In the distance on the Scottish mainland, Ben Cruachan looked magnificent.

We were now heading towards the SW corner of Loch Spelve, a beautiful and remote environment.

The contrast between the open crossing of the Firth of Lorn and the mountains gathering round the head of Loch Spelve could not have been greater.
