Mull of Kintyre


My girlfriend has come to visit and we spent a lovely couple of days on the beach at Ballantrae – swimming in the sea and warming up and cooking by a fire made from the plentiful dry driftwood.

Yesterday, I crossed from Ballantrae to the Mull of Kintyre.  It was a bit hazy so I was out of sight of land for most of the way (although I could just make out the top of Ailsa Craig as I passed within about 8 miles of it).

Conditions were so calm that at one point, the only ripples I could see on the water were from where insects were landing.

Eventually, Sanda Island came into view and I landed on the beach near Southend.  A long crossing, but it had taken Shana almost as long to drive the long way round.
