No hidden dangers in Loch Dunvegan..but you can get strong tide rips going round Dunvegan Head if heading for Loch Pooltiel..and like most of the Skye coast in that area..you wont be able to land going round the headland due to the sheer cliffs. ..very scenic though.
Only thing to be aware of in Loch Dunvegan is the seal tour operators get quite verbal if they see you go close “their” seal colonies.
Beauty of Skye is you can usually find a sheltered loch.. regardless which way the wind is blowing.
As you are in the area.. I would strongly recommend a trip in Loch Bracadale and venture round Idrigill Point to see MacLeods Maidens.. you will pass some of the most scenic coast line in the UK. Pick a nice day ..and its very feasible in a small boat.. there are no strong tides in that area. Launch the SIB at Harlosh Slip.
Immediately there are interesting rock formations heading for Harlosh Island.
Harlosh Island has one of the few sandy beaches on Skye..although it gets covered at high water. There are a few reefs off Harlosh Island where I have caught huge Pollock
Cross to the coast heading for Idrigill Point and you will pass huge caves
Rock Arches and unusual rock formations
The huge cliffs and rock “bust” at Idrigill point
And round the corner.. MacLeods Maidens themselves.
A very worth while trip.. but do pick a good day..because ..even if you can land on the rocks..you aint going to scale the cliffs to escape.
As soon as the wind starts to behave.. I hope to head for Skye myself..I have a wild camp trip planned to go from Broadford.. Scalpay.. Raasay.. Rona and back to Broadford via the Crowlin Islands..hopefully before the midges arrive in July. I will be doing it in my SIB.
Hope the photos put you in holiday mood .. Enjoy your visit..Skye is a lovely place
