fortunately we are all different but I think that just emphasises my point, even for a boating holiday we don't all agree what makes the perfect location!

Toridon is an excellent base. Plenty of holiday cottages, good slipway and the Toridon hotel offers bar/restaurant food... if you're pushing the boat out (excuse pun) their hotel restaurant is amazing. The hotel also offers various outdoor sports and fishing for non boaters. We cruised to the Isle of Canna from there last year. Isle of Rona may have Bothy accommodation if you fancied a short overnight trip. Pm me if you want more info.
