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.

Lunch on the rocks at Loch Ranza.
We crossed Loch Ranza, a sea loch at the NW point of Arran. Loch Ranza Castle was silhouetted against the backdrop of Arran's rocky ridges, which soared to the castellated summit of Caisteal Abhail, 859m.
Although it was only seven bells in the forenoon watch, we decided to land on a rocky shore...
...for our first luncheon...
...before setting off across the Kilbrannan Sound.
