Bikeraft Scotland – Two Adventurers Inspire with Instagram Photo Gallery

We paddled out there as quietly as we could, rounding the corner to see a dozen or so lazing on the rocks, snorting indignantly at each other and doing a very good impression of some grumpy geriatrics. They were beautiful to watch. After a while we left them to it, and rode the strong tide race down this channel, with the Paps of Jura and the famous whisky-producing island of Islay in the distance. There was always at least one seal bobbing alongside to keep an eye on us until we had been safely escorted off the premises.” Photo: Annie Lloyd-Evans
