False impressions at Blackwaterfoot.
Drumadoon Point. Mist was curling off the Craig's summit, giving the impression that it was still an active volcano.
...and paddle right up under the bridge over the Black Water burn. It all looks very impressive...
...until you see it with the tide out, like this view from our visit in January 2010. The harbour is little more than a river channel.
It was still early morning and the adjacent Kinloch Hotel was not yet serving so...
...we hoisted the sails again and set off from the harbour towards Brown Head. As we rounded each headland on the southern end of Arran, the wind freed and strengthened and we sailed on an increasingly fast broad reach.
