Scottish anchorages

Cuan Sound

(the Sound of the Ocean)


Surprisingly calm water here, just as it was in the late 19th century when Frank Cowper threw down his anchor in a panic after dicing with an adverse tide in the Sound itself  — but there are now houses unless you go on further in to seek complete solitude. Not much to do ashore, probably best to sit in the cockpit and admire the view. And pour a stiff gin and tonic if like Cowper in 1896 you "..look back upon this little adventure as one of the most unexpected and trying I ever had to encounter in all my cruises".
