Days like these - Iona and the Ross of Mull

This Google Earth slide shows the track of our three day sea kayaking trip to Iona and the Ross of Mull.  We paddled a little over 100km during the three days, but the distance was really irrelevant - it was the stunning colours, light quality and beaches which really made the trip stand out - below are just a few of the highlights....

The "pink milepost" at Pennyghael, with Loch Scridain and Ben More beyond.

Dinner al fresco at our base - Fidden Farm camp site.

Breathtaking colour at Port Ban on Iona

Bones of the land - Ross of Mull pink granite

Watercolour light - Eilean Annraidh

St Martin's cross, Iona Abbey

Sunsets at Fidden with the calls of Corncrakes and Snipe - magical evenings.

Days like these...memories to last forever.


  1. I am still amazed by the colors and the light. When nature gets things correct it can truly be spectacular. Thanks for all the effort in posting the words and pictures.
