and I guess you have just been to the part of the coast I am looking about. Any pictures, details on moorings, fuel, B&Bs, Pubs, camping etc would be great. Iím driving up there in a week to spend a couple of days looking around.
We were based just outside benderloch. Loads of campsites round there as well as pleanty around oban.
Places visited were (in no particular order):
- Tobermory (kids wanted to go to Balamory)
- Lismore and then craignure (mull)
- Connel bridge and loch etive (awesome playing in the falls of Lora)
- Easdale and Oban
plus general playing about.
Easdale has a great pub / restaurant on the water with good food.
Oban - pleanty options
Mull - Craignure again has pub that dores reasonable food
Tobermory - Lots of choice (some better than others) and the infamous mishnish!
For fuel - Pleanty garages about, although fuel on mainland is significantly cheaper than on mull. Oban being the cheapest.
Launching - puffin dive near oban I believe is a good places. Many of the campsites have slipways.
Haven't yet got any real photo's off the camera yet but it's a really nice cruising ground.
