The Old Man of the Mull of Logan.
We enjoyed fantastic sea kayaking through a maze of skerries as we paddled towards the still distant Mull of Logan.
The Mull itself looks rather uninteresting when approached from the north. Lurghie point just emerges gently from the sea.
However, turn the corner and its character changes. We found ourselves paddling against a stiff adverse current between Otter Rock and the Mull as the tide had turned almost an hour before.
Then we turned a corner and there was the Devil's Bridge, one of the finest but least known of Scotland's many rock arches.
In the lagoon behind the arch, the stony gaze of the Old Man of the Mull of Logan keeps a perpetual watch over those who pass the Mull...
