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.

From one paradise to another.
We left the delights of Shoe Bay on Eilean Shona and paddled the short distance to the mouth of the South Channel of Loch Moidart. We turned north up the exposed west coast of Eilean Shona. Now we were well and truly on the open sea, what a contrast to the confines of Loch Shiel!
At first we had a little wind to assist us but it soon died away leaving...
...an uneven slop as...
...we paddled north.
We kept a respectful distance from the headlands as there was still a heavy swell.
Then we cleared the north end of Eilean Shona and paddled across...
...the wide mouth of the North Channel of Loch Moidart.
