Looking down to the Mare from Longa Berg
Looking down to the Mare from Longa Berg
Having walked round from the tombolo beach via the southwest and south coasts of St. Ninian's Isle, we had thought that conditions for sea kayaking round the island didn't look too bad, despite the wind. This first view out through the channel separating Sweyn Holm from the main part of the island confirmed us in our original view that this was a day for walking round looking from above, not poking in to caves and geos at sea level. Although the swell was not penetrating the geo at all, there was big surf all along the outer rocks - this coast is very exposed to the Atlantic.
