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.

A Lady like landing.
Our journey to Lady Isle continued unhindered by further ships. About half way across, we could just begin to see the lighthouse on the horizon.
The mountains of Arran lay far to the west and the wind increased as we paddled further into the open waters of the Firth of Clyde.
As we approached Lady Isle, the sea became shallower and together with a little increase in wind and swell, conditions became more interesting.
We were delighted when whe made our final approach and went into a...
close orbit before...
...finally touching down on the far side of the Isle...
...where we enjoyed a hot cup of tea beside the "No Landing" sign.
