Day 3 and 4 had turned out to be one of the most extraordinary experiences of all our outdoor pursuits to date.
As mentioned previously planning of our activities had been pretty much random. COVID19 pandemic restrictions meant that one could only book boat trips since yesterday (19th June) which is when these were lifted. Of course, all boat journeys have been booked within the first day (when we were busy exploring the misty Fairyland around the Old man of Storr).
When we phoned up to book the boat to take us from Elgol to Loch Coruisk we were advised not to turn up as all trips were fully booked for that day. Knowing that people in this part of the world are always willing to chat we thought we would do just that. We turned up for the boat that had been scheduled for 10 am and missed it but the next one was at 1.30. And guess what? There was a cancelation so we were able to get on!
We asked the lady in the local Ice cream shop at the harbour if we appear casual. Absolutely was the reply. The reason for this was that we had a lot of gear as we endeavored to set up a second camp (CAMP 1) on the loch. It meant to transport 2 small tents, 3 sleeping bags and mats, kayak, food, and all other additional gear such as swimming goggles, soft toys, binoculars, cameras, and others.
