    Hi Cailean, that had me foxed.

    I was sure I had been there recently but thought it would be way up north where I have not managed any recent trips. But then I knew I must have paddled it because it looked so familiar! I was sure Ihad taken a near identical view!

    So it’s not way up north, it’s just half way north!… Sunart

    The hill on the left is Ben Laga so it’s looking west. The white sail on the right horizon is just in front of Oronsay. Behind that is Carna. The little bump just above and right of the foreground point is Rigsa. You can see right up the loch through the gap between Rigsa and the north shore of the loch so I would put the photo location, just off Rubha Aird Shlignich!…

    Douglas :)

    Douglas. Bingo! It’s really part of your guidebook area strictly speaking ;-)

    Hi Cailean, I do like Ardnamurchan, but the memory of paddling back there for 56km from Gunna with a dislocated knee will linger on for a while yet!

    How far up the Loch did you get? Did you shuttle from Ardtoe/Tioram to Salen or use the good services of Glen Uig Inn drop off service?

    :o )

    Started at Glenuig. Yes. Longer way but lovely skerries.
    Then as far as fishfarm before Salen and pickup by Steve from the GlenUig Inn.

    Looks like Scotland but I guess it would be nice picture anyway im strictly white-water but am interested in getting involved in some sea kayaking

    Kris - apologies for slow reply! Height & power of waves all depends on the quality of the ground swell & the local wind conditions. Check out a surfing swell predication website for a general overview of the West Coast of Scotland. As far as Sanna Bay goes - it’s very open to West and is may produce ‘dumpers’ at the right state of tide.

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.
