Excellent thread the gurnard !

I was around there that week , but unfortunately I didn't see you.
But Will be returning in a few weeks , I have recently acquired the same Sib and similar engine set up as yourself .Launching from Samalaman Beach , just west of Glen Uig.
Just a quick question , roughly how much fuel did you use for the entire trip.as I planned something similar (Weather dependant).

Many Thanks Alzi

"Public slip at the head of Loch Ailort"

Is that off the A861? I've looked on google maps but the only slips I see are leading out to fish farms. Your photo seems like another world from there. Do you have the co-ordinates

Hoping for a trip up before the summer is out.

Hi again..yup..the public Slip is off the A861 and is the first slip you come to. Its easy missed as the entrance has high rhododendron bushes either side. There is a large lay byand a safety bouy at the entrance. If you reach the mussel farm slip..you have passed it about half a mile back.

You have a very good setup Alzi..I saw your post looking for one..but I wouldn’t swap mine for all the Oil in the North sea :-D

I took a 25L main tank and 2 five litre containers..had plenty left at the end


Im heading up that way again next week..hoping to go the other way..into Loch Nevis and Loch Hourn..a really remote adventure.

To whet the appetite some more.. here are a few more photos that you can see from my journey..you just have to look for them :-D












And another aerial shot from the top of Rois Bheinn




Remember too.. leave only footprints and take only photos..or fish you will eat..and enjoy.

Absolutely marvellous stuff. What wonderful stories and pictures, thanks very much for sharing them. I really must get off my home patch and explore more. It's just getting the boat past Ardnamurchan Point!
