Catterline to Dunnotar castle

Whilst the Pink Elephant (see last post) did empty our energy stores a wee bit, Robbie and I felt that it was not quite sufficient. So we joined Ana's Catterline-to-Dunnotar castle trip. As usual with Ana's trips, the skies were blue and the sun were shining. Here she is leaving the small harbour at Catterline.
 Soon we passed a huge arch. Here is Robbie dwarfed by it. 
 The coast here is rich in features, making the sea kayaking truly world class. Here a waterfall...
 ... and here is Ana washing the front of her boat.
 There are many caves on this stretch of coast and some of them are 50 m long or are long tunnels through the conglomerate cliffs. 
 Here we pass these stunning cliffs...
 ... in two photos.
 Here another cave...
 ... and here is Ana and a nosy seal near by. The seals seemed quite relaxed and followed the kayaks.
 Moira on her way to Dunnottar castle...
 ... which is on a hard-to-invade hill.
 We had a lunch break and sunbathed on the other side of the castle. 
 After lunch the mild wind worked against the tide and it was a bit more choppy, ensuring that also the return journey was entertaining. 
What a great weekend. Scotland has spoiled us for the last two weeks! But the weather will turn tomorrow...
