"So, if the reader is disappointed that I have omitted some favourite place, or have failed to note some point of interest or to speak of some special feature of beauty, it is because in no one book, or indeed by no one man, could everything be said about this yachtsman's paradise".


S Heckstall Smith

Isle, Ben and Loch, 1932


"Small boat sailing has always been my hobby, and nowhere have I found finer water for it than on the West Coast of Scotland, where besides the pleasure of handling the boat there is the interest of the navigation of intricate channels in lochs and sounds - to say nothing of the enjoyment of the varied beauty of the scene."


Capt JR Harvey

“My cruises, when time permits, are on the wildest and most picturesque coasts of Great Britain and Ireland in pursuit of pleasure and health.

From the Thames, he sailed round Britain three times (1863, 1871,1887) to find his cruising grounds, and he particularly enjoyed the west coast of Scotland .
