Last weekend my son Blair and I paddled from Fairlie just south of Largs to the west side of Bute.

On Saturday we headed back south along the coast of Bute. The weather had changed and was giving us some swell to play with. Blair was having a great time, he did not stop grining the whole trip.
The wind had picked up to a force 4
Our camp Saturday night was at Port Dornach at the south west end of Bute.
When we were making our way back to Millport one of the many tankers passed us. We had to quicken our pace to get well out his way.

We went over to have a closer look at these amazing cranes.
