Welcome to RIBnet! I can't help with your query (I think you had a query ). Nice part of the world to potter about in, I'm guessing you will have three daughters as crew! One of the local Scroatish lads will be along in a minute to assist

Best of luck

Boggi's probably one of the most local!

Seriously though, if you've got a specific query the "Bobbyjoeufb" is local - he's not been on here for a while so perhaps PM him or email him.

I have ribbed around the area further West on the coast, its not the most forgiving bit of coastline in the UK.
I wouldn't be particulary happy travelling far in the area in a small inflatable except in sheltered bays. Its a particularly tidal area with strong tides, overfalls and lots of shipping.
Where exactly in the area are you intending to go and I'll see what the pilots say about the specific area you mean..

As Bruce says, that bit of coastline is pretty unforgiving. It's a treasure-trove for sea birds and fishing. Take an anchor with you, hand flares, plenty fuel, etc. It's useful to have other boats in the area, for peace of mind. I'm heading out of Ullapool in July for my annual holidays to Lewis.

By Ferry or RIB?

Took that trip by ferry in 2008. Some lovely views from the deck on the return trip:
