|The Cuillins from Elgol (Picture from a previous trip)|
It was the third and final trip of the weekend and after a proper scottish breakfast it was time to head to Elgol. I always think you judge the beauty of a place by the weather.......if you are still in awe in bad weather the this is a special place! You can definitely say this about Elgol.
When we launched the Loch was looking mean with chop and wind everywhere. The call of the Cuillins was too much to cower in the van! Destination was Loch Coruisk (Britain's Favourite View). It was Catherine's birthday and we planned to celebrate in style! Neil had the candles and we had the cake! As we made slow progress across the Loch enjoying the excitement that the waves provided.

As we neared the end of the Loch the weather was improving and we made headway much quicker. We passed the seal colony quietly and made our way around the coast to our landing point. With our trusty pocket rocket and birthday surprise we made our way to Loch Coruisk.
