28th August Oban Home

Wild winds 40knots got in shelter of Lismore and motored.  To wild for pictures that day so here is a little clip of the trip instead.

27th August Sunart to Oban

Brill Sail down Mull  to Oban

26th August - Moidart to Loch Sunart

Left Moidart for Coll and ended up going to Sunart - as the wind was on the nose the whole way to Coll (

25th August Tobermory to Loch Moidart

Woke to a wonderful morning  -  Headed out off Tobermory turned left towards Ardnamurcdan point, wind was mixed so bit of sailing and motoring towards loch Moidart.  The entrance entrance to Moidart was a challenge, having to wind our way through a channel in it what seemed like a expanse of water. But what a fantastic place.  Best anchorage by far on the west coast so far! Tucked in behind a forest covered island  next to another with a Castle on it.   Dave turned up within an hour of us and, anchored close by. We all went to visit the castle,  motoring over a mil pond,  Dave Neil and crew came over for drinks post dinner and just made it back!

24th August Night Sail to Tobermory

Motored up to Tobermory to get ahead. Wonderful evening as we motored in the sunset.   Got in about 10.30 in the Pitch Dark , which was interesting picking our way through the bouy's!
