Gigha for a few days of sun – 11 July

We have just had the most glorious few days, sailing down from Dunstaffnage to Gigha via Cuan sound and and anchorage at the north end of Shuna. Wall to wall sunshine, not much wind but we have sailed about half the way. We had some fog going round to Ardminish bay yesterday, from a beautiful little anchorage near the north east corner of the island at Glas Eihnan, and that was a bit thought provoking. We decided not to go down to Rathlin island today as the forecast was for more fog and a southerly wind, neither conducive to getting to Rathlin. So another blissful day in paradise on Gigha. As we had done the Achamore gardens yesterday afternoon, which were lovely; we went for a walk northwards in the blazing sun, then a snorkel and now sittingat the bistro on their wifi.ImageImage Image

      Thanks Sandra. We are now in Holyhead having come via Rathlin, Bangor (NI) and isle of Man. Still very little wind but have managed to sail a bit in the afternoons. Great for wildlife watching though. So many birds and porpoises, it makes you realise how empty the seas are round Scotland these days. The weather is amazing and we are both really brown. Early start for Dublin tomorrow and then some sightseeing. Hope you have recovered from your China trip! X
