On Tuesday 22nd we sailed from Loch Harport to Canna. We spent the morning ashore exploring the village of Carbost. The village includes the Talisker Distillery which of course we toured!

We dropped the mooring at 1430 and motor-sailed up the loch in very light winds. We had a short sail in the mouth of the loch but soon the wind died entirely and we motored the 20nm to Canna. The disappointment of motoring was offset by the magnificent views of Skye and the wildlife seen. Lots of birds, several dolphins and a small whale.
