Wind Surf passing in a stately fashion south down the Sound where....
Discovery, was approaching Tobermory. We expected the Wind Surf to continue past Tobermory but she turned in to the bay while the Discovery anchored off. The small town must have had a pretty busy day with the passengers from two cruise ships coming ashore.

After some hesitation, we decided to press on, and, as we walked....
The loudest earthquake we've had here occurred at 8.14 this morning - it sounded like an explosion - and the ground shook. The British Geological Survey site at Plockton - seismograph record above - showed the event clearly.
The earthquake was later reported to be a magnitude 2.4 event, at a depth of four kilometres below Glenuig, with people reporting tremors as far away as Inverness - see BGS report here.
