Lot os inquisitive seals on that island as well
Well she's off Tanera Mor as I remember, I think you are referring to the Island I call Cairn Skerries
for which I've attached a photo below, of an older RIB of mine which was anchored on the Easterly side .. a nice rock wall to tie up to but if springs are running.. you'll be checking your ropes very often
If you go to the other side, it dries to 0.45m or less at dead low so anchorage isnt really a proposition there overnight, particularly if you get a prevailing south westerly, or worse westerly, from the minch, and its rocky too. The other side is small stone and sand, (pictured) so if you pick your spot you might be ok, further up the beach is round pebble
The seals are good fun though
doesnt matter how easy you sneak in there .. they are very wary ,.. but always come back to see whose annoyed their daily slumber
Kick me if youve done all this research .. hehe
