Lingering on the sands below the glacial symmetry of the Sannox mountains.
Beyond Fallen Rocks on Arran's NE coast the land becomes more heavily forested and gave the clear water a beautiful green tinge.

A white post announced our arrival at Sannox Bay which we entered with several...

We enjoyed the perfect location for a leisurely luncheon. We lingered in the sunshine not wanting the trip to end too soon.
