The early bird

Off Isle of Muck

Some time’s I known to rise out of my bed early, well rarely in fact if I’m not working. Prior to heading out to the Small Isles with my wife in 2007, I wasn’t totally convinced about the forecast after hearing it.


So I popped down to the beaches of Arisaig to get a clear view of sea and clouds, so I could reach my own conclusions about the weather. The fellow in the picture above was obviously finishing his nightly rounds and I couldn’t see whether or not he had his breakfast in his mouth.

Despite the forecast of SW 4-5 for the next two days, the wind didn’t get above a breath a.k.a. Force 1.

I'm currently writing a sea kayaking guidebook for the Northwest Highlands; Cape Wrath to Ardnamurchan Point including Skye & the Small Isles. This blog will keep you updated as to my progress and hopefully the blog and in turn the book will inspire you experience the Northwest Highlands by sea kayak yourself.
