Petrol NW Scotland (north of Dunstaffnage)

Hi


Can anyone chip in with recent practical knowledge of waterside petrol availability as we go north from Dunstaffnage - even as far as Lochinver or Stornoway?


I can't think of anywhere...............but then I've mainly fuelled survey boats round there by diesel tanker on the quay so wasn't really switched on to it.


thank you

I think you'll be struggling for "waterside" petrol other than the Clyde.

There are a few places where the local petrol station isn't to far from the pontoons. eg Tobermory, Gairloch, Malaig, Portree but it's mostly going to be to hand balling gerry cans.

I think you're right - but I thought it wouldn't hurt to see if someone could come up with a blinding gem! :-)

you can get petrol in Lochinver at the petrol station about a 15 min walk from the pontoon moorings .if there's no one there go over the road to the spar I think it might be they operate the fuel station.

we will be there in four weeks and counting hope this good weather holds
