I am really not sure if Loch Creran is worth the effort. Somehow it is a rather dull loch for boaties, albeit with nice mountains at the end heading up towards Glencoe. The road down each side is obtrusive, and so are the houses. It is generally too populated for my taste. Anyway anchoring these days is very restricted because the loch is now a Marine Special Area of Conservation (SAC) owing to the bedrock and biogenic reefs, the latter made from the tube worm Serpula vermicularis (known as serpulid reefs) and the horse mussel Modiolus modiolus (known as horse mussel beds) which can be all too easily damaged by anchors. Furthermore, the two best things are a bit out of range of the anchorages that remain - the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary and the Isle of Eriska Hotel. Maybe boaties should leave the place to the worms and visit by road.
