Following a week of concentration and working hard for our 4* sea kayak assessment, Tania and I still had a further week of holiday to enjoy, out on Skye. The weather had been windy and stormy at the start of the week but as it abated, we started to make some sea kayaking plans. It was time to relax and have some fun...

The plan was to launch at Isle Ornsay and head over to the Sandaig Islands, the setting for Gavin Maxwell's "Ring of Bright Water". The sun was out and the day was dry, but the wind was still stronger than we would have liked.
