West Coast Scotland – Rona bothy!
Hi all - got some picture for you of our trip last week from Gairloch, Rona, Plockton, Inverie then back to Gairloch round the West Coast of Skye via lock Coruisk.
The bunk house in Rona is basic but perfect and it has a little pontoon. What’s more you can see the pontoon from the bothy, which is very cool for RIB owners who love to check their wee boat, is ok!! On top of that Bill (the factor for the Island) who lives there with his partner Loraine can provide you with fresh lobster, vension (also from the Island) and langoustine and you can eat this whilst look out of the window to check your boat!!!!
It has to be the best bunkhouse with pontoon in Britain. We normally try and book the place for ourselves but if you want to just pay for a bed it is £15 a night. There is a compost loo outside and a proper loo and shower up at the lodge for during the day.
The island also rent out 3 holiday cottages over the hill from the anchorage at the next bay up the island called Dry Harbour (as the name suggests not much water at low tide :0) and a rocky bottom) it is a 25 min. hilly walk from the pontoon.
Anyone else stayed there would love to hear what you think and if you think you have a bunkhouse/bothy to match it would love to stay there!!
Also got a couple of newbie RIB questions about my boat will post those in the next thread!!
Any questions about the trip fire away – can’t tell you how good there weather was despite the forecast saying it was going to rain!!
