You can't plan for the weather here. pick the middle of summer (spotting those two days can be a bugger!!) and take a chance.

If this planning transpires let me know,I might know a sneaky place or two the tourists don't.

I would say mid May to mid July. Generally the driest and least windy, but you never can tell. The pics I posted were early June. Hot sun, frigid water and air icy at any speed. But it's great when you stop.

Keep an eye on the Atlantic systems on the Beeb weather site. When you see a high coming over the north, pack up and go - you might only get one chance.

Those two pics were taken about 1300. I set off in fog, vis about a mile if that. The weather site showed the cloud would clear the Ross of Mull by 1200. I arrived in Tinkers Hole 1210, anchored, and by the time I was sorted there was a clear blue sky and the world was steaming.

Shaggy was the guy sharing a very small tent with his friend Andy on the Scillies. There were some very odd noises coming out of the thing. And, Shaggy had trouble with his nuts the following day.
