Hello, After some convincing the wife has granted me a week away next year to sample some of the west coast of Scotland
A friend and myself plan to tow the rib (6mt) up and spend 7 days on the water. Since reading about "The Gurnards" adventures this is something I must see and do. We plan to come up in May next year, flexible on dates and waiting for the best weather window, Launch perhaps at Oban and spend 6 nights touring. The plan is to spend 2 nights in Hotel/B&B and 4 nights wild camping.
Ideally would like to stay 1 night at Port Askaig hotel (fond memories) and the other hotel stop perhaps at Tobermory with camping in between and either side of hotels. I believe I can get fuel at both Port Askaig and Tobermory.
I'm looking for advise on the following:
When camping we plan to anchor or beach the rib using the tides and would like advise/recommendations on good beaches/sheltered bays where this is possible.
With 7 days what do you think is achievable in distance area to cover/Islands to visit of course weather dependant.
Best area to launch from and store car/trailer for a week.
Lastly any advise on kit or anything else from anyone that's done this themselves.
