Kyle of Lochalsh not to bad, Gairloch (From north end of the sand beach at Flowerdale....can be seen from the water), Portree (A fair hike from the harbour.....better if you come through Loch Portree (high tide only) and walk up through the car park. Mallaig, petrol station near harbour. Uig, near ferry terminal, Broadford....next to Co-op, rough beach next to it.

PS there's a slip onto the beach at Harlosh....DON'T take your car onto the beach...we've had a Land Rover stuck on it Looks hard but it's like driving on marbles.

That's great thanks for all the info really helpful!

So really there are no marinas that supply fuel? Looks like it's gonna be Jerry cans to the nearest petrol station!

Cracking run out yesterday to Canna, 87nm round trip from Kyleakin. Definitely my favourite of the Small Isles. Scenery stunning.

PS I'm assuming it's petrol and not diesel you're looking for as there are a few of the fishing harbours that have red diesel.

Yes petrol. I found a place at Uig that isn't too far a walk so looks like we will fill up there.

Will add that to the list on places to visit.

Thanks

You did.

We slipped out of Lough Swilly (Donegal) on Tuesday and nipped over to Port Askaig (Islay) for the night. A quick trip up the west coast of Jura in the morning, through the Corryvreckan, and back down to the Isle of Gigha last night. Today was a run over to Rathlin for lunch, tea in Cushendal and dinner in Donegal.

Such days, such days....
