Scottish anchorages

South Shian

This is the bay on the east side of Eriska, an anchorage dominated by boats on private moorings I fear, and not all that interesting. There is a small slipway in the southeast corner just by the islets where you can land although it may be part of someone’s garden (the house was an old inn, built in the mid 19th century). Then there is a walk of about a mile up a very quiet road (turn left at the cross roads) to have a look at a spectacularly perfect late 19th century restoration of the early 17th century Barcaldine Castle, or rather L-shaped tower house. This was described in the Black Book of Taymouth, 1855, as ‘ane greit hows in Benderloch in Lorne of four hows heicht’. It is privately owned and does up-market bed and breakfast which must be fun as well a costly (ph 01631 720 598).
