Escape

I’m just back from another short trip to the Scottish islands. Three nights on Seil, which is a few miles south of Oban. I decided to escape for a few days before autumn arrives.

I visited Easdale and Luing too. The only way to reach them is by ferry from Seil.

I’ve been trying to work out what was my favourite experience, and found a lot of possibilities.

The marine safari, seeing a minke whale, porpoises and sea eagles?

The seaweed foraging tutorial on Easdale, eating several kinds raw on the beach and then cooked later?
