Hi Maximus..yup..Arisaig area is the jewel in the crown of Scotlands boating areas.
Its so varied around that area..and gives easy access to small isles .. Eigg ... Rum.. and the huge sea lochs of Loch Nevis..Loch Hourn.. Loch Moidart to name a few.
The wild life is in abundance too. ..and as proved by me often..is accessible by even the smallest SIB..as long as you know what you are doing..and choose your days. I do stress though... experience counts when using this type of small craft in open waters.
Some more photos from the start of this week..
Tides can have a fair pull through the skerries of Arisaig. I enjoy nothing better than going with the flow..looking for flows and back eddies to pull my shallow draft boat through gaps between the rocks.. in the direction I choose .. with my engine turned off. Its like drifting in a dream ...
There are silver sand beaches hidden in every cove..with not a human footprint to be seen
The still snow covered Cuillin add an interesting backdrop to the oyster catchers roosting on their rock.
And in the deep .. more exposed waters ..of the Sound .. cormorants dry their wings .. with Rum as a backdrop. The ever swirling swells remind me not to go too close to rock..or Im in a burst boat and trying to dry myself beside the birds.
Yup..it takes some beating ..does our Arisaig .. especial in a beautiful mid March heat wave..its out this world
