Had another look - I'm not right there - not Acarseid Mhor - I would have been able to see Mull from that Angle and its too wide and not the right shape
Completely bolloxed!

Now then, now then, you're being much too hard on yourself. It's jist that your powers of recognition and memory are on the wane. Anyway, you were spot on with Bunessan, so here are another couple of clues. This is the anchorage at the start of the passage, but looking in the opposite direction from the earlier photie;

And this is about an hour later going round the south, gey roch looking, side of a well known island;

The Black Isles innit.

PS - I'm sure some of these would make great calendar pics (particularly the first IMO) if you were willing.

First Pic - -Thought it was south Mull, sailed along there a few years ago and only saw one coo all day. Almost as deserted as the Portugese coast. Eventually found the Torrans quite friendly (well at least they were something to think about).

Okey dokey, we started the day at Tinker's Hole, known to Robert Louis Stevenson as Fiddler's Hole, and then we sailed........
