Day 9 - Carbost to Kilchoan

Carbost - steps away from The Tallisker Distillery
Today's mission is to leave the Isle of Skye and head for the ferry from Kilchoan to Tobermory. Left Carbost travelling down a single track road with furry obstacles. Another sunny day??? Booked my 90 minute boat trip in Elgol and then drove Elke, Sam and Benny back up the hill where they could explore the shop and the small creek. I drove back down to the pier and got ready for the tour across the loch. Water was calm and nice ride. The Bella Jane does this trip mainly to drop passengers off so they may hike across the islands. Right beside the dock was the beach that Danny MacAskil started his trek called "The Ridge"

Watch this clip, you won't believe what this Scottish bike rider will do.

Got to see lots of Harbour Seals again but alas no Puffins.

Back into port and again down the winding roads dodging the sheep. Caught the ferry at Armadale headed for Mallaig. Started driving towards Kilchoan passed Morar and the spectacular white beaches and aqua blue water. Although it looks like the Caribbean the water was not for swimming without a full wet suit.

for coffee in Salen (another mandatory mocha for Sam and Benny) and learned about the forest fires in the area that had been burning for 2 weeks.

Exhausted made it to the hotel in Kilchoan to wait for ferry next morning.
