We felt like enjoying the beautiful scenery and admiring the most southerly Munro (mountain over 914 m height) in Scotland from a Clyde-built paddle steamer. The billowing smoke from the two funnels mixed with fresh air and the oiliness/grease of fish teas being prepared - it felt like taking a step back in time. On the palate we were inhaling smoke from a nearby heather fire on the shore as well as eating a packet of salt and vinegar crisps. With water we opened a well-used leather rucksack on deck and got out smoky salted maple nuts which we’d earlier roasted in peat smoked Hebridean sea salt.
