It may be a bit far for you to go, but if you are going as far north as the Garvellachs anyway, Puffin Divers in Kerrera Sound is just a but further on and they have petrol (and diesel) on the dockside.

Petrol on gigha

Julie

There is petrol available on gigha.

If you tie up a the timber jetty on gigha it is only a 200m walk to the local shop. They have cans available and will deliver down to the waterfront. very helpful people.

Otherwise no perol at Craobh but there is petrol available at Puffin divers just south of Oban.


Travelling up from Jura to Oban go through Cuan Sound and through Easdale As you approach Oban from the south Kerrara Island will be on the west side of the channell and Puffin Divrs are on the east. Fantastic facilities and very helpful people. Easy to find. everything is paintd black and yellow.

Njoy.

I'm jealous! Everytime I've been there it's not been that rough, just ended up swinging and kicking the back end a lot.............

What state of tide where you there?

Hi Julie

We were 3hrs after HW on a fairly big tide. we estimated the standing wave to be 3m high. felt a bit safer in an 11m cabin redbay than i would on a jet-ski!!!

Lovely day for it, I was exploring the islands in Loch Shuna. Awesome RIB too Mike. Walked past her on the pontoons yesterday. Drool - but then I thought of the fuel.

Wow, 3m. I'd have been scared or watching!

The biggest standing wave I've ever played on was about 1.5m in Kyle Rhea......

Good to hear you are having some fun in one of my favourite spots.
