A lovely walk from Loch Buie to Loch Spelve, Isle of Mull. 

Thank you to guest Ai-Lien Lang for sharing these pictures and text with us:

- Seahorse II anchors in Loch Buie but not for long! Bosun Roy tenders the guests to shore and then he and Captain Charlie will move the ship to Loch Spelve.

- Several hours later, Seahorse (wee ship on left) makes her way into Loch Spelve to pick us up at the end of our 6-mile hike across the isthmus (at the red post box) after a nice hike to the Stone Circle and beyond.

- We earned our cuppa tea when we re-boarded Seahorse!
