Sanna Bay lies on the north-west shore of the peninsula and Arnamurchan Point pokes out on the west coast. Sanna is achingly picturesque - the point a bit less so but it's a fine spot for sea-watching. The weather (including not much wind) meant not much was coming close inshore though.
Seawatching from the lighthouse yielded lots of Manx
Shearwaters beyond camera range, It was while watching a flock of these through the scope as they banked
and turned and dropping into the sea that I saw the grey back of a
Minke Whale briefly break surface - my first whale-from-land.
