Raasay, Day 3

It poured all night, but in the morning the sun appeared, and the forecast was for a weather window. I set off with a friendly north-westerly wind to help me along. The coastline of Raasay is lovely here- Torridonian sandstone cut into interesting shapes. To my right was the Trotternish peninsula of Skye, which is also full of interesting geology.

Conscious of the weather forecast I hurried along. As I crossed the Raasay narrows to Skye the wind was backing and strengthening. The final kilometre to the slipway was again a slow battle against a gale, with rain battering me in the face.
