Z07-23: Island hopping Hebrides
From the pretty port of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, we sail south. Weather allowing, we can anchor off the impressive Shiant Islands, uninhabited but home to lots of Puffins. The next day we sail over to the pretty little harbour of Gairloch on the mainland, where you can go for a nice stroll in the forest. The cruising area ‘the Minch’ is full of marine life, chances are high that we will encounter dolphins this sailing trip.
We also sail to Rona, a very pretty island with a very secluded anchorage. The entrance is barely detectable, which is also why Vikings and smugglers made use of this beautiful bay. It is now a nature reserve and there are many deer, obviously we will make a nice walk over the island.
Portree, on the Isle of Skye is also on the programme. A lively little port with nice shops where we stay for the day to take a long walk to the impressive ‘Old mann off Storr’, from where we have beautiful views over the Isle of Sky, the sea and the surrounding islands. Alternatively, you could of course take a scenic bus tour of the island.
The second last day we sail to the picturesque town of Plockton, beautifully situated in a sheltered bay with forest and a castle. The next morning we can take a short forest walk and then have a coffee in the quaint village. We will end this sailing trip in Kyle, with beautiful views over Skye and where we will dine out to conclude the sailing trip.
A wonderful sailing voyage along the ‘Outer Hebrides’ in northern Scotland with beautiful nature, serenity and tranquility. Because of the few marinas out here, we will also anchor a lot, but this sailing area of Scotland is perfectly suited for that because of the many options.
The daily sailing distances are between 10 and 30 miles. The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
