Thanks for the responses so far.

If you take your RIB up here and leave on a mooring buoy, then do you need an inflatible to get to the shore?

Or indeed if there is no mooring or pier. What do you do.

Thanks

Gary

I generally use a dinghy to access shore in the Oban area. If you are trying to get away into the wilds you may as well make a proper job of it........

usually people hanging around areas of moorings, normally more than happy to help you ashore. always been fortunate like that, a couple of quid or beers will normally be payment enough!

No moorings where I usually stay. Anchoring is usual around here. I take a dinghy. Some people swim ashore in dry suits

There are not many visitor moorings around here, most are private and I wouldn't trust my boat on any that I didn't know. Could be a chain of paper clips holding the buoy - or an enormous rusty fishing boat will pick it up at three in the morning, whether your boat is on it or not.

Our regular overnight trips are usually Rum and Eigg, we take a great, dirty big anchor and chain and use that, for most day trips we use the same.
There are some visitor moorings around the coast but I wouldn't rely on -
a. finding one.
b. it being free and empty.

You coming to the Easdale Trip Tony?

Hi gary as you have not answered my question re the location I take it was more of general query. I would therefore as I boat in the same area as Alystra and Bruce agree with both their posts. Where ever you finish up going have a good time and I hope you get plenty of good ribbing.There is an anchorage site that might help http://sailing.agurney.com/

Yep! Fully intend to Bruce. Got my name down on the web site anyway, but it's very weather dependent.

Spot on with your comments btw. Cheers Tony

Sorry, the areas I am looking at are probably firstly around Bute and Cumbraes. I know the area a little. Secondly Oban, I don't know it at all apart from the sound of mull which is really only from a passenger point of view.
