A day [or three] at Aird Feinis, Na Hearadh - following reeks of strong wind & heavy breaking swell - rolling with the punches. It's an almost constant feature of this part of the coastline throughout winter. It is also, some of the best, unsung sea kayaking ground in the Hebrides. The Jurassic DNA of this area is rampant, its wild thrown skylines, cut by great volcanic incisors dominating each turned corner & geo.
The surf landing site in the photo is for SoFs only - composites need not apply. Well ok, they can apply, but they will lose a good 8 inches of nose trying to fill out the form. :o)

Thank you Douglas. Aye the coastline is a bit jaggy :o)
Aird Feinis is a great partial micro-climate in a vast location. If you are up this way & want to paddle it some time I'd love to ride shotgun & show you some hidden treasures up beyond Scarp, Loch Tannabhaig [Loch Teabag as a certain wee girl calls it] & Eilean Mhealasta. Huisinis is a great RV point, & the stac grouping SW of here can be as mad as a mad thing on a mad night ferry piloted by Mad Jock MacMad. :o)

Ah yes, & I saw the Cuma docked in on our way back across the winding roads. It hadn't moved days later. I think Murdani has his feet up somewhere...Slacker!!!
