Back in spring last year I journeyed out to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool with Seafari Sea Adventures and wrote about my experience for Airdeny Chalets. It was a wonderful wildlife boat trip despite the very grey weather that clung to the afternoon. At the end of last month, we took a trip back to the Isle of Seil on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed the landscape of this former slate island wrapped in the winter sunshine.
I wandered around the pretty village of Ellenbeich, drinking in the last dregs of sunlight that danced around the island-dotted seascape and taking photos of the slate-adorned scenery.
If you’re on the Argyll coast and want to visit the Isle of Seil or the Isle of Easdale, a short boat ride from Seil, it’s around a half hour (scenic) drive south of Oban, crossing the ‘Bridge over the Atlantic’ that connects Seil to the mainland.
