Scottish anchorages

Oronsay

Sailean Mòr, the gut on the north side of the island can be a quiet spot, away from the crowds in Loch Drumbuie, but it seems crowded if there is more than one boat at anchor. The island is difficult to get around because of the wild vegetation but the walk up to the ruined cottages is worth a go - you can see them from the anchorage, on the west side of the gut. There is at least one black house (with the curved corners) and one white house (with windows, and generally much better built). I have no idea what the story of this island is, maybe it is too obscure for anyone to know much about it. But, once again, the population was 'cleared' by the end of the 19th century.
