Swell Tiree

Gott Bay Pier
The Pier, Gott Bay, Isle of Tiree

Due to swell conditions the 15:15 sailing from Castlebay to Oban was delayed and the consequence of this decision is that this evening’s sailing from Tiree to Coll and is cancelled. Although the above view of the pier is bright and sunny there was a considerable swell running. For most of the previous evening and overnight the wind was gusting up to 56mph and so throughout the day those on the island for the waves will have been delighted.

Two brave souls and their dog enjoyed the conditions at Scarinish.

While the sheep quietly graze the waves crash in on the bay.

Driving round to Crossapol the suffers are making the most of the conditions.
