Loch Sween

A long way in — and a long way out — but nice if you are in a relaxed frame of mind, and not in a hurry. It is all very pretty with lots of deciduous trees each side — gentle cruising. As Cowper observed "The loch is broken up into so many bays, and even subsidiary lochs, and is so beautifully wooded in the valleys which alternate with hills all along its shores that it forms a charming scene to be explored". Over a century later not much has changed, except for the march of the pine plantations.


There must be lots of places to anchor and most of those in the Sailing Directions are marked on the map. Tayvallich is good for stores, Castle Sween has a beach as well as the castle, and the Fairy Isles are aptly named.
