Scottish anchorages

Flying

You need to get yourself to Oban airfield - best from anchorages at Oban, Dunstaffnage or Saulmore bay - and then a taxi, say Etive Taxis (ph 01631 566880).  It calls itself an airport, and in a miniature sort of way that is exactly what it is, complete with miniature terminal and check in desk, but thankfully no heavy security checks. All very trim and spotless, quiet and empty except for one receptionist. Free parking too. And do-it-yourself coffee. It even provides instructions about how to get there by bike. As far from the horrors of Heathrow as it is possible to imagine. But not too difficult if you ony have to deal with on average 12 passengers a day - in 2015.

 

There are two options. All the year round you can take a scenic flight, if there is a free seat within five days of departure, on one of the scheduled Islander flights to Colonsay, Islay, Tiree and Coll - it is basically there and back, at the moment for £65. And they do charters.  Hebridean Air Services ph 0845 805 7465. This information does not seem to be on their website but it is available from Oban Airport itself.

 

Or, in the summer, Fly Scenic Scotland does sightseeing flights over Mull, Jura, Loch Etive and so on, ph 01228 573 490.
