With strong winds and heavy rain in the forecast, today was very much an expedition. With plan A looking unlikely, we headed to the shelter of the Western Isles and towards the Isle of Harris and Lewis. We were escorted into the sheltered waters by puffins, Manx shearwaters, gannets, and storm petrels. By the time we anchored and launched the Zodiacs, the wind had dropped, and the sun was shining. We spent the afternoon exploring the Neolithic standing stones of Callanish.
