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.

The great quartz vein of Grob Bagh, Gigha.
A great vein of quartz....
...stretches out to sea from Grob Bagh on the SW coast of Giga.
Seen end on it is like a miniature mountain range covered in snow.
The quartz crystals are predominantly white but are...
flecked with brown.
In comparison, the rockpools at the base of the vein are a blaze of colour.
