Isle of skye killer whale

Had a run out from skye to Tobermory two days ago, whilst passing behind the isle of rum came across two killer whales in the open water, just amazing, we were cruising and couldn't get to the cameras quick enough and couldn't believe our eyes.

Sea has been like a glass pond.
