ON PAST THE OLD MAN OF STOER




ON PAST THE OLD MAN OF STOER

Originally uploaded by arctica.

On passage from Tanera Mor (Summer Isles) to Lochan Saile (Badcall) we took Arctica close inshore for this photo of the Old Man of Stoer. It being Saturday we hoped to see climbers, but were disappointed. However, a fixed traverse rope from the shore side remains in place. There is always an extra frisson of excitement on entering an anchorage for the first time, and so it was with Lochan Saile. The approach from Eddrachillis Bay is through a scattering of islands and islets, past narrows with a central reef, then a final turn in to a sheltered pool, well protected by reefs. Here we are enjoying the proximity of red throated divers and greylag geese.
