FINALLY SCOTLAND

So we are back on the mainland.

Yesterday we had a short day on the water. We paddled from Glenarm to Cushendun to reach the best place for crossing to Mull of Kintyre. Tides were running in our favour early in the morning or late in the afternoon, it was also quite foggy, so we could not consider crossing the same day although I could have been tempted otherwise.

At Cushendun we have found an interesting house on a secluded beach having a system of caves as a driveway, it looked wicked.

Today we left at half past seven towards Scotland. Crossing was OK, it was an important crossing, since it brought us back to mainland. It wasn’t as hard as we expected but it still felt longer than what it actually took us.

There was an unusual number of Puffins flying around, more than we’ve ever seen on this trip before. We landed half past two, and I have to say, it is great to finish early sometimes, especially when it’s sunny. We managed to let all of our wet kit to have some sunbathing.

And as a treat we had Haggis Nachos, what a great first day in Scotland.

  1. Well done guys. Great you arrived early. I saw you had set off early this morning. Love the photo of you in sunshine in Scotland and the Haggis Nachos. Makes me hungry and reminds me I must get something to eat soon. Look forward to hearing more about that particular crossing when I see you as its the one I want to do ie paddle from NI to Scotland. Hope you have a great evening. Lots of best wishes from me and also Lou and Natasha who have been down here in Cornwall with me ( from Shadwell). Xxx
