Scottish anchorages

Eilean Garbh

(and West Tarbert Bay)

Now here is a great anchorage, sheltered from the north if you anchor in the south bay, and from the south if you anchor in the north bay. Both bays have delightful sandy beaches but they can get crowded with bathers and wild campers. It is also well worth scrambling up to the top of the ‘island’ for the views from Ireland to Islay to Jura and up the sound of Jura to Kintyre with the mountains of Arran beyond, and to watch the CalMac ferry ploughing its way from West Loch Tarbert to Islay, rather close it seems to the rocks off the north end of Gigha.
