Thanks Boss. It's generally very cold up there at night!

If you set up an account with Eilean Siar you'll get an electronic key and you're allocated a number. The account is normally a direct debit for payment and you'll need to declare whether you're private or commercial so you can't work the 60/40 split. The benefit is that you'll be sure of fuel for the length of the Hebrides and if you fill up at the top end you'll be all set for a fair distance afterwards. Also, where you have fuel you will have shelter so leaving the boat for a night over BnB shouldn't be a problem. Loch maddy has nice new pontoons and a hotel with a restaurant and a gimongous selection of malts....

Can't help around the top until you're down to the Moray Firth on the east side.

Cheers Mr Walker - the low down/go to as usual. Don't figure on running down the east coast, unless we take a mad notion for Chinese food in Inverness....


...that said, I like Inverness.

Well, you could do worse than spending a few days chilling in the gorgeous Caledonian canal doing a homeward leg....I always hate just going back the same way I came.

Hmmm. Interesting Fraztiree. We might be swinging by Tiree anyways, as donegaldan has distant relations there. He collects relations.

I always meant to ask you what the alongside situation is on Tiree - is there anywhere for a RIB to safely tie up - are there visitor moorings?

I'm gonna dieve yer heid with questions

Fraztiree, last time I was there it looked like there was maybe diesel alongside at Milton? Or is that a private supply? Would save lugging cans down the pier.
