Jim Breen launching at Ledaig.
The plan was to paddle from Ledaig south west, across to west of Dustaffnage Castle and follow the coast passing Camas Rub na Liathaig, Ganavan Hill, Ganavan Bay to Maidan Island near the narrows between the Island of Kerrera and the mainland into Oban Bay. The paddle revealed many small coves and ideal landing places along the Dunstaffnage Castle area. The whole area of this coast was adorned with wild primroses, a sprinkling of thrift and interesting geology formations. Ravens from Ganavan Hill and the occasional seal kept us company as we headed for Oban Bay.

We thought it would be a good idea to give way to the Mull ferry heading into Oban!!!!!
