An encounter with Loti on an uneasy sea.

Long after we had left Belnahua we were still being carried north at 9-11km/hr on an uneasy sea. Wind against tide here can be an interesting experience. Fortunately there was not a breath of wind.

Looking back to the Garvellachs, we could just make out the outline of Colonsay to their right side.

Soon we left the isolated rocks of Dubh-fheith behind.

As we approached Easdale, the evening Cal-Mac ferry...

...passed on her way to Colonsay from Oban. She is the MV Lord of the Isles. Loti as she is affectionately known is 84.6m long and was built in 1989 at Port Glasgow on the Clyde.
