Total silence in the Sound of Arisaig at sunset.
On our return across the Sound of Arisaig we initially had a decent breeze to assist our progress but
..as the sun sank in the west and Rois-Bheinn took on a warm glow, the...

...wasted no time in ordering a round of sports recovery drinks. David and Phil were of course very disappointed to have missed the dolphins....
It may have only been a short afternoon trip but it turned out to be one of the most memorable days on the water, ever!
