Scottish anchorages

Port Mòr

I have not myself anchored here but once you find your way in through the skerries I am told it is very protected. The bookshop was once the main reason to visit but it moved to Scalasaig in 2012. The Colonsay and Oransay Heritage Trust is up the road in the old Baptist Church. Presumably they and the Colonsay website spell Oransay with two rather than with one 'a' because it is named after St Oran, but most people and the OS map go for Oronsay - the 'ay' bit means island in Old Norse). I have yet to visit.

 

And nor have I visited the nearby 18 hole local golf course - not my game at all. There is an honesty box. Apparently it is over 200 years old.

 

The Kilchattan graveyard up the road is nothing very special but in the middle are the ruins of a 14th century chapel.
