More good weather so we decided to make the crossing to mull of kintyre in one. There couldn't be much hanging around to make the 24NM crossing before the tide changed. However, we had to radio a rather large ferry to make sure they'd seen us and then zig zag about six fishing trawlers. After about 5 hours sanda island (just off the mull of kintyre) finally came into view. The crossing was horrible with all the boats, but sanda island was well worth it. Seals and bird life everywhere , we had our first swim of the trip and then bivied on the beach.
