Heading for Traigh Gheal past Rubha Calachain
Rounding the southern end of Erraid on an evening paddle, heading for Traigh Gheal - a fantastic beach with almost no plastic debris despite facing south into the weather. The jointed Ross of Mull granite, of Devonian age, intruded towards the end of the Caledonian orogeny, offers easy rock-hopping opportunities in the very minimal swell we experienced on this trip and weathers to a clean white sand in the shallower inlets like this one. Sea kayak is by far the best way to visit these isolated beaches, as crossing the island involves bog, midges and a certain amount of fighting with willow scrub, as we found when we tried to cross the area to the left of this photo to get to the top of an impressive geo we'd found from below.
