Shiants marker buoy
Shiants marker buoy
Although a starboard-hand buoy, this one is normally passed to port, as it delineates the southbound shipping lane through the Little Minch. Visible on Lewis behind is the lighthouse that marks the other side of the lane.

On days that are not quite so calm as this, it's probably a welcome sight after the treacherous waters of the Sound of Shiant.
