Day 2 - Port Mor to Ceann Traigh

We weighed anchor in Port Mor, a useful anchorage opposite Tobermory which saves the hassle of dealing with a busy port, and headed out to sea. A most unusual phenomenon occurred, the ever present ceiling of gray clouds melted away and we were bathed in sunshine! This may not sound so unusual but sunshine has been in short supply on the west coast this year. Leaving the sound of Mull porpoise spotting could begin in ernest.


Sadly no whales or basking sharks made an appearance this time. We headed on past the small Isles and rounded Ardnamurchan, the most westerly point of mainland Britain.


We anchored in Loch Ceann Traigh, just to the south of Moidart, in time for Eric to head out to get dinner, armed with a lobster pot and a fishing line. There was also time for some exploring in the kayak around the beautiful white sand beaches and a run ashore to hear the famous 'singing sands’ sounding their chorus under our feet.
