Scottish anchorages

Camas nan Geall

(Bay of Strangers)

I know not why this is not included in the Sailing Directions, on a calm day with northerly weather it is superb, a wide open bay looking over towards Tobermory. The single-track road above the bay is far enough away not to be obtrusive, and anyway there is not much traffic. Ashore there is a somewhat sandy beach, OK for sand castles, and behind that a well-tended field with sheep. But not just sheep. Over the centuries the farmers have kept away from and have now enclosed an 18th century burial ground with a couple of interesting head stones and even a standing stone on which is carved a Christian cross, and also some trees surrounding a broken down chambered cairn. These, along with some scattered domestic ruins, give the place a sad sort of a feeling, but the views are not to be missed — on a good day of course. There is an iron age fort on the headland to the southwest which I have not got to yet.
