Have a look on Google Earth street view. there is a good view of the slip 58 8'50.49"N 514'30.42"W

It is steep and a bit awkward, but it is concrete all the way. You can't use it at low tide since the bottom uncovers but anything half tide upwards is OK. Watch the approach by boat - rocks - so keep to the harbour wall side.

Top half is quite weed free. There is usually quite a lot of junk pilled around from the small storesheds at the top of the slip. Either that or someone repairing a fishing boat on it.

Hi Julie,

Don't forget to post some information on Boatlaunch if you get around to using the slipway.

Thanks for that. I assume you've used it? Maps is good to view it.

I also called the harbour master, he reckons 2 hours each way of high tide (it's neep when I'm up there) so I'm quite happy now....

The one at Scourie is also on maps... out of the water as usual ......

And yes, I'll take some pics and stick on Boatlaunch, always handy as I check there first when I'm launching for the first time at a slipway. (Good advertisement? )

Julie
