Ardbeg Distillery emerging from the mist an hour or so out
from Port Ellen.
With a strong tide, a head wind, and a channel between ¼ and ½ a mile wide I motored for an hour to clear the narrows and was through in just over an hour and a half covering 10 miles. With plenty of time in hand I sailed on to anchor in Glenbatrick Bay, Loch Tarbert on the north coast of Jura.

numerous raised beaches just visible on the extreme left, most
are on the northern shore and unfortunately too far away to photograph,

An hour after I arrived the sun finally started to break through for a pleasant evening.
