Moorings on Tiree

We are hoping to head out for a week of surfing on Tiree and wanted to go via rib rather than Cal mac. Does anyone know if there are any moorings available for visitors around Tiree that we could hook up to, and if so who to contact?

Could leave her on the anchor but would feel a lot happier if there is a spare mooring around.

I have taken a rib out to Tiree a number of times and dont know of any visitor moorings....best place to anchor/dry out is in Scaranish old harbour...but not much depth...last time we ended up taking the rib via calmac and launching as and when required... sorry cant be more helpful..

Thanks for the reply - it looks like drying out in Scarinish is the only real option. Presume its a sandy bottom so should be ok provided i remember to put the engine up!
