Ann, Iain, Geoff & I met at cuil Bay, narrowly avoiding being beach cleaned, & set up a shuttle. OTW for 11.00, a gentle paddle south along the coast with the tide, but into a light wind, showers and sunshine, with beautiful colours after the rain. Early lunch, then explored round the back of Castle Stalker, and got back round the other side of the castle just before it dried - finely calculated! Bit of rock avoidance for the last stretch to the light, then across to Port Appin for hot chocolate /coffee, and huge chunks of banana loaf. thx to all for a grand day
