no specific place really, just wondered which places people liked the most, and proven cruising circuits.
my family have a yacht on loch feochan so we do spend alot of time around the mull area diving and sailing.

I've got family from Lewis, in Uig. When you head out Loch Roag into the Atlantic... the next stop is Halifax, Nova Scotia! Fantastic fishing, including pollock, haddock, herring, mackerel, red gurnards, skate, lobster, etc. Had a 5m Minke whale come up for air next to the boat last year. Bear in mind the sea was inky black, calm, and it was 11.00pm on a summer's night. For f**k's sake... my heart can't take it! Hopefully heading up end of July into August.

Enjoy.
