We have some friends who go to Tiree most summers for some surfing. They've invited us to join them on this years trip, and since we don't surf I'm considering dragging the boat. We'll take it over on the Ferry not travel from the mainland, but once we get there can anyone shed any light on:
(1) Suitable launch sites for FWD car + small boat (boatlaunch is rather Barren in this area!).
(2) If its really a sensible place for short family beach hops in a 4m boat with 20HP engine in reasonable weather? On the chart it looks like it should be ideal - but somehow that doesn't fit with it being a "surf mecca". Presumably some of the beaches are much less exposed? We are talking early July here.
(3) Fuel availability on the island, and if anyone has experience taking fuel over in standard portable fuel tank(s) in the boat on the ferry (is it technically DGs?).
(4) If the weather is excellent presumably Coll is within sensible reach - so where are the must visit spots on Tiree and Coll by small boat.
Assuming we tick all those boxes, does anyone know of a nice sensibly priced house that would sleep 4 adults and 4 kids thats free the first week in July
