Sea kayakers unloading at Mallaig harbour
Behind the kayaker talking to passers-by at the right of the photo is a concrete slipway which gives access to the water. For kayakers, it's not the easiest of access, especially at low tide, since the lower part of the slipway is exceedingly slippery with weed, but at least, being within the harbour, one is not contending with a swell (the wake from an arriving Calmac ferry does a good impression of it, but one only has to wait a couple of minutes for calm to return). The parking here is only short term, so kayakers must pack their boats then go and park much further from the town centre if doing a multiday trip, as this one was. We had just returned from a four day trip over to the Sleat peninsula, returning via a night in Knoydart with a fabulous sunset. Easter Monday saw the weather deteriorate to drizzle and increasing wind, so it was good to be back at the cars and ready for the long drive home.
