The road to Loch Buie.

At first it seemed a real drag (literally) to have to portage the kayaks round a rocky headland to reach the sands of Loch Buie. I had to tackle each slight slope backwards because of my knee injury.

Then we caught sight of the sea.

The perfect peace of the scene was broken only by the white foam of the waves which were breaking along the long crescent of sand on Traigh Bhan Lagain.

We stood for some time under the slopes of Beinn nam Gobhar (435m). We were just enjoying...

...the beauty and tranquility of the scene.

Without doubt, this was the finest approach to a sea kayaking launch spot that we had ever made.
