Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply, there seem to be some interesting ones there. Wifey likes the posh ones, which has just doubled our budget, as until now she was happy in a caravan.

You could put your boat into Oban Marina, or onto one of the visitors' moorings in Oban Bay if you want to stay close to Oban, and stay at any number of hotels or guest houses in Oban from which you could keep an eye on the boat.

Or there's the Wide Mouthed Frog at Dunstaffnage Marina.

SeaSkills (Oban centre) has a small number of moorings on the island side of Kerrera Sound - not as easy to access but pm me if you want any more information

If you like "posh ones" try Melfort Pier www.mellowmelfort.com, at the head of Loch Melfort. They have serviced moorings, which you can see from most of the apartments.

Have you thought about going further, ie up to the Plockton area or Arasaig, it would only be another 2 to 3hrs drive.

They both have moorings that you can rent, from Arasaig you get out into the sound and can see the minke whales and dolphins between the mainland and Eigg.

If you really like it you could always move permanently, it seems to be on the market at the bargain basement price of only 4.1 million. Form and orderly queue please.

Yes .. probably an RBS shareholder trying to make something of their decimated portfolio

Just a few short months ago 4.1 million would probably have bought most of the shares. I think I would still prefer Melfort though.

Shhh!!! Don't let everyone know or it will start to get as crowded as the solent. Mind you having a few more folk around might encourage some more shore side facilities like petrol to be made available. Lugging petrol from garages is just not my idea of fun.
