Scottish anchorages

Port na Fraing

Port na Fraing is just north of the slipway, and you can also anchor off Traigh Ban nam Manach — the white strand of the monks — a spectacular beach. Wonderful jagged rocks by the shore, smoothly polished granite pebbles as big as cricket balls, fabulous white sand, startling green machair, and a backdrop of the cliffs and mountains of Mull. No wonder the Scottish colourists came to paint here, as indeed artists still do.


This is a place for a hot and peaceful afternoon, not for getting the shopping because it takes half-an-hour to walk in to the village. But not too far, without heavy bags, to visit the Abbey.
