5th April 2018

Staying at Resipole campsite this Easter provided Tania and me with an opportunity to explore Loch Sunart and the surrounding area. Meeting up with Steve that week, we decided that a trip into Loch Teacuis was in order.

I lived on the Morvern Peninsula some 30 years ago and had always wanted to approach Loch Teacuis and Barr by sea. This was the perfect opportunity – the weather was settled and the day was looking good.

Launching from Camas Fearna on Ardnamuchan, we paddled eastwards towards Glen Borrodale and the island of Risga. From there it was time to head south, skirting the island of Carna before making our way through the narrows and in to Loch Teacuis itself.

A lunch stop with a view was the perfect opportunity to soak in the peace and quiet of the area before launching and heading northwards again to Isle Oronsay. Unfortunately the low tide didn’t allow us through the narrows at Doirlinn and the portage was too far, so keeping to the north side of the island, we enjoyed the coastline.

Working our way along the north side, we paddled down to the entrance to Loch na Droma Buidhe before heading back across Loch Sunart to our start point for the journey.

Enjoy the photographs below. The Google map is interactive and will allow you to follow the journey and to view the photographs from each of the points.

The image gallery will allow you to scroll through the photographs and there are a number of 360° interactive panoramic photographs. Pan and zoom to enjoy the scenes.

And the 360° video at the foot of the page is a compilation of short 360° interactive clips taken through the course of the day.

The interactive Google map below traces the route of the journey. Click on the markers to see the individual photographs.

The start of the journey from Camusfearna Bay. With snow on the surrounding hills and the sun promising to shine throughout the day, there was a promise of Spring in the air.

Passing Glenborrodale Castle, we paddled eastwards towards Risga.

Lunchtime and it’s time for a brew courtesy of Steve.

Great views from a picturesque lunch spot.

Time to launch. Whilst the tide had dropped, the boats were easily slid down to the water again.

Low tide prevented us from cutting through to the south of Isle Oronsay but the north coast looked perfectly inviting.

So what’s the collective name for a group of kayakers?
