Mull of Galloway

This was the lighthouse on the Mull of Galloway the night before I set off on my trip round Scotland. Beautiful.

Port Logan

The first day of the trip round Scotland found me in Port Logan.

The sunsets were beautiful. Storm clouds passing by producing beautiful images like this.

The Port Logan lighthouse built in 1815

I pushed myself on through rough sea with the thought of a nice cold pint and a hot meal. Only to find the pub was closed for refurbishment!!!! 

I must say a big thank you to the guys and girls of the Rutland Canoe Club who looked after me in Port Logan. Met them on the beach and they invited me for dinner and a wee drink. Thanks guys for your kindness.

Big thanks to Suzie from Bijou Flowers in Ardrossan who sponsored me.

Looking down at the cliffs and currents of the Mull of Galloway

This is the tidal race at full force. The water here is very dangerous. 
The sea was boiling. very scary!!!!!

Thanks for the warning!!!!!!!!

 Beautiful cliffs

The tide race was very scary and not for the faint hearted. 
I was terrified when I set off and was heading towards the point of no return into the race.
