Scottish anchorages

The Small Isles and North of Ardnamurchan

It is said to be a bit of a challenge going north round Ardnamurchan, but if you pick your time with a nice following wind it is a piece of cake — and rewarding (but do remember you have to get back against that wind which might have got a whole lot stronger). Indeed it was so easy the first time I did it that the crew renamed it 'Softnamurchan'. So far I have not yet included much in this area except the so-called Small Isles which make up the wonderfully varied quartet of exotic and strange names. Muck is small, pastoral and well farmed; Rum is much larger, mountainous and wild; Eigg is more of a crofting sort of a place; while Canna is both rural and wild with one of the best harbours in the Hebrides. And with a few others on the mainland I have added Loch Scavaig, the most dramatic anchorage in the UK outside of St Kilda and perhaps Foula although I have never been there.
