Jacobite Rounding the Light

Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for these pictures of the creel fishing boat Jacobite rounding Ardnamurchan Point lighthouse in brisk weather a few minutes ago.

Readers shouldn't be misled by the cheerful blue sky: that's only arrived in the last couple of hours.  Since 8.00pm last night we've had a wet westerly blowing which has brought us just under 30mm of the wrong sort of Kilchoan sunshine.

These pictures also remind us of the sort of conditions our fisherman face in order to deliver fresh fish to our tables, though these Tobermory men will probably say it wasn't too bad a day today.

  1. I have been on a pleasure trip from Ardnamurchan to Muck with sea that developed to about force 5 on the return.. quite brisk enough for those without legs that are accustomed. I admire those that make their living from the sea
