Arr... Poly me Lad.. it sounds a sound plan to me .. to route plan as we plane on the day ..to suit the weather and the waves.
For those of you not in the know.. Belnahua is one of the least known of the “Slate Islands” to the south of Oban. In its hay day ... more than 100 people worked and lived on the Island. The last inhabitants left at the start of the First World War. The village now lies in ruins.
Weather dependant ..we hope to camp overnight among the nostalgic ruins. There will be a fire to BBQ burgers and other edibles that you bring .. a bucket with an old toilet seat and Elsan liquid to assist disposing the edibles in the morning. We will ensure the island is left as we found it ..if not cleaner.
The route we take to get there will be weather dependant. Tides can run at six knots in the area.. so ensure your SIB engine is up to scratch. Also make sure you read Poly’s PDF attachment which basically says “If you drown..dont come crying to us..it is your own fault” Unless of course you are keel hauled and made to walk the plank for mutiny.
X marks the spot for treasure Island me harties. The village pavements are paved with fools gold. T’will be a true adventure ..thats for sure... and don’t forget to bring the dark gravy to loosen yer tongues. We likes to hear a good yarn from a fellow sea rover.
