Hi as someone who boats out of tayvallich I cannot understand your last leg. You say you are going to Lochgilhead for fuel. If you could advise when exactly you would be in the area I maybe there and could have fuel for you at tayvallich or Carsaig the latter would save you coming up Loch Sween.

True, but it may also sell you the 35L you need to get back......

Except I've just realised another lap of Mull would be a touch pointless....... time for a strong coffee methinks!

Sounds like a cracking trip your planning, just remember to take some Avon Skin so Soft with you to try keep the midges away!

That's a very kind offer. Thank you.

We would visit Jura, and then visit friends in Lochgilphead. So we plan to stay there a night or so and perhaps they might offer to drive us to the nearest pump to fill some tins!

Hope that makes sense.

ps I used to go on Holiday to Tayvallich..

I've made a mistake.

I read the address as by Lochgilphead.

What I actually mean is Loch Caolisport. der. my fault.

I have heard that before - does it actually work???

Tends to tarnish the reputation of your typical Scotsman though - so that's what you keep in your sporrans.............

It certainly does work - apparently one of the biggest customers is the Army! Does smell a little bit feminine but it's a small price to pay to stop the midges....

"picking someone up of the aeroplane?" Not so easy on the beach itself, but couple of easy options very close by. Either go NW and you can use the slip for the new car ferry to Eriskay, or the old jetty that used to be for the less recent passenger ferry to Sth Uist. (Keep an eye on the plotter/sounder through there though - pretty shallow, with large random 'lumps' of rock)

Or you can go south back towards Castlebay and pick someone up in/around Northbay (advantage there is that it's in the direction the bus from the 'airport' would go anyway).

Fuel available in Tiree if that helps. You can tie up to the ferry pier (Gott Bay?) and it's a short walk to the pump. We found an old shopping trolley on the pier which made it easier getting the cans back and forward.
