Scottish Advice - update

Iíve booked in for a couple of nights at Eilean Iarmain on Skye, in the Sound of
Sleat.

I thought the Old Forge Pub in Loch Nevis and Eilean Donan would be worth a visit.

Any other suggestions, maybe a beach, much appreciated.

Plockton & Loch Kishorn ( Spectacular Drovers Road looking north ! ) for starters . Maybe as far as Applecross ? Skye's the limit.....

Gents thanks for all your advice.

We had a wonderful time.

We stayed at Isle Ornsay, on Skye, at a decent hotel right by a small harbour. The boat was accessible at all states of tide. We had great day trips to Glenelg, Knoydart, Eilean Donan and an amazing beach at the Point of Sleat.

We saw dolphins, eagles and lots of seals.

We only saw Plockton from the land but that looks pretty special as well.

Definitely going to return as there is so much more to see and do.

Sounds great! Hoping to be able to manage something like this next year ourselves. Possibly elongating our ERR trip.

How did you manage for fuel? Was the boat on a mooring?

Hi Dan,

I've got removable 25 litre tanks, so I just drove to the local garage.

Once I had sussed things out, I just tied her up to the harbour wall with a long rope.

As someone said already in this thread , it's a ribbers paradise!
