This morning I went with a freind to Gunnister Voe with the intention of kayaking out of the Voe round the seaward side of the Isle of Gunnister, going south with the wind and swell down to the south end of the Isle of Nibon before returning north through South and North Sound into Gunnister Voe.
The forecast wasn't the best, but not bad and as we set out for the Isle of Gunnister at around high water. There was some surf breaking on the rocks to either side of the channel out into the Atlantic, but nothing much in the middle so we carried on towards the clear channel.
Sorry the pics get worse as my mobile gets saltier! But the other pics later on are worth the look!
We went out past the island but the swell and wind was really picking up and leaving us pretty exposed to possible swamping with an open cock pit so we headed back in to go round the east side of the Isle of Gunister in the lee of the wind and swell.
We pulled up on a beach on Gunnister to adjust a few things and then explored a few caves and gjos on the way south to the Isle of Nibon
