Kilchoan Early Bird's photos, taken near Ardnamurchan Point at 10.30 this morning, give some idea of the conditions there. How fortunate that this was a northwesterly, so that the Lysblink Seaways was protected in the lee of the hills.
The ship is the Burhou I, a cargo ship heading for Lochaline. Kilchoan Early Bird estimates the winds at force 8 to 9.
Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for the pictures.
