Im sure you will have a great time at Clachtoll Beerbelly. I can never make up my mind which is the most attractive beach there. Clachtoll itself



Or Achmelvich which is just before Clachtoll. They can both get a bit of surf at time though



A trip around the Summer Ilses at Ullapool is another fav journey of mine. I once did them in a 2.8m slat floor Seago SIB.with a 2.5HP engine. I was a bit madder in those days though

Sorry Spartacus but I have no photos of Lewis... I will get there some day ....in my quest to ďbagĒ all sea lochs in Scotland :-D

I would love to go to the Bahamas Willgrif72 ..but I doubt I could afford it now. The sea at Poole ... looks better than the sea at Stirling where I live. Thanks for sharing your photos

Looks fantastic.

I'd like to camp on a secluded beach one day that's only accessible by boat.

Not many of them in kent though!

Hi again guys..been a busy day for me today..so a bit late in updating my adventure.

I had just landed on the perfect deserted beach.and had a quick look round. Its a small point.. surrounded by sea on three sides, and backed with cliffs on the landward side. There are fantastic views over to the islands of Egg Rum and Muck



I pitched my Tesco Value Tent on the grass verge surrounding the sandy shore



While keeping an eye on my SIB. I didnít want it to get stranded in the falling tide just yes.



Because I was now getting hungry and wanted some dinner... so took the SIB for a spot of fishing on the reefs not far from my campsite



However I only caught a couple of small saithe which I threw back. No good for dinner or even bait for other fish



Starving and fishless I looked back to my deserted beach and tent, nestled below the imposing cliffs and decided to land again



To break open the emergency rations of... best Aberdeen Angus Beefburgers ..followed by Strawberries for dessert



Yup... It can be a hard life living on a desert Island

I then built my campfire. I donít use stone rings with my wild camp fires because I see no purpose for them... and hate seeing others leaving rings from campfires.

I build the fire on the sand and bring good wood for burning with me ... so when its finished... there is very little ash. Then it is scooped up in a bucket and left below high water line... so the tide removes all trace of my being there. I just wish others would do the same....

Take only photos and leave only footprints.



I then settled down for the evening with a few beers and enjoyed the sunset shown in my first post

I will tell of my next day part of this adventure tomorrow. In it, I disappear up the back passage into Loch Moidart... so do return to see what that is all about. Thanks for reading this far.

A Sibbing Sunset with the Gurnard

Ah, it WAS you I saw on Saturday, (or was it Friday eve) I was standing on the roadside at Locheil Outward Bound Centre, just about to cross and open the gate to the slip when you past, it was the loaded SIB that I spotted first, I was sure it was yourself.
