Ah, there will be, but Ribochet is a closed book when it comes to himself. Not like me

What an experience and hats if to the solo adventure. Really nice to see you in Tatvallich on your return leg home. You certainly picked the wx. It was apparent talking to you that you really enjoyed your west coast journey and the people.
I don't think it will be long till your back.
I watched you leaving the pontoon and rounding the headland into the loch. Glad you made safe home.

I read this thread with interest as the Outer Hebrides is probably my favourite place after having lived up there as a forces sprog in the early 80's and then an infrequent visitor ever since.

Kilda would be a fantastic destination but there is also the Monach Isles which are about 7 miles west of Benbecula plus there's lots of other islets closer in.

We are planning on going up there in May with the intention of basing the boat at the marina in Loch Maddy. It should provide a good base for exploring.

We visited the Monach Isles around 23 years ago on a diving trip. Spectacular scenery & birdlife. Not much in the way of shelter iirc, a tad unforgiving if it blows up. Is there anywhere to land?
