A warm sunny start to the day from Elgol Harbour
Paddling along the coast with the Cuillin towering ahead.
Sunshine and shelter heading for the head of the loch
The slabs on Sgurr na Stri streaked with water from recent rainfall
Misty Isle Boat Trip's Maid of Coruisk at the landing stage at the head of the loch.
Sunshine breaking through the hail showers on the Cuillin Ridge
Setting off for Soay with the cliffs stretching along the sound to Rubha an Dunain
The old house at the site of the shark processing plant
The old Fowler traction engine boiler brought in to power the winches and plant
It's fascinating to trace to route of the rails and cableways, with capstans hidden in the bracken.
Setting off back for Elgol with the wind behind.
