Set off at turn of tide to avoid the roost in the Sound of Hoy. Lovely square rigger making her way slowly up wind. Very lumpy sea all the way to Eribol, left over from strong northerlies. Decided Rispond Bay would be too open to the swell so went a few miles down the loch to anchor in the bay behind Ardnechie Island. Very secure. Intrigued by the substantial stone lime kiln and abandoned quarry on the island.
