Rough Seas

Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for this picture of the Scot Venture rounding Ardnamurchan Point at about 7.30 this morning in pretty horrific conditions following last night's storm. Bear in mind that by that time the seas had begun to settle as the main part of the storm came through in the hours around midnight.

By half past ten things had calmed down in the Sound, but nothing seems to stop the local Kilchoan-Tobermory ferry from operating, even when 22 out of CalMac's 25 routes were disrupted. The Raasay did have to follow a slightly altered course, heading up towards Bloody Bay in order to keep the worst of the seas on her starboard beam before turning and running down the Mull lee shore to Tobermory.
