Imagine you are at the edge of the sea on a day when it is difficult to say where the land ends and the sea begins and where the sea ends and the sky begins. Sea kayaking lets you explore these and your own boundaries and broadens your horizons. Sea kayaking is the new mountaineering.

Auchalick Bay, Loch Fyne
We continued paddling north up Loch Fyne along an unspoiled and remote coastline.
By the time we reached Eilean nan Gabhar at the south end of Auchalick Bay, it was time for first luncheon.
What a place to stop. Above high water the rocks were covered with multicoloured lichens and sea pink.
Down at high water level, the rocks were bare but displayed wonderful and ancient patterns.
The north side of Auchalick Bay is bounded by the distinctive slopes of Gob a'Bharra. I loved the way the yellow gorse flowers matched the golden lichens on the rocks in the foreground.
