Sailing Area (part 2)

Canna and Rum (click on the image for a larger version - please be patient while the image loads)The “Western Isles Milebuilder” weeks also start from Tobermory and will appeal to those who want the experience of longer passages. The Outer Hebrides come within range and visits to the remote islands of Mingulay, Barra, Uist, Benbecula, Harris and Lewis are normally possible.
A circumnavigation of Skye could include the puffins and seals of the Shiants and possibly even the Summer Isles near Ullapool or the sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe. On our way south we might stop at the picturesque towns of Portree or Plockton before tackling the tidal race at Kyle Rhea between Skye and the mainland.

Fair Isle (click on the image for a larger version - please be patient while the image loads) Our programme includes some longer and one-way cruises in June and July, taking advantage of the long days and allowing us to undertake more adventurous passages to St Kilda and Orkney and Shetland.
St. Kilda lies out in the Atlantic to the west of the Outer Hebrides and the islands and their massive cliffs are home to Europe’s largest sea bird colony.
To reach the Orkney Islands we sail along the wild northern coastlines of the mainland and round Cape Wrath before crossing to the Old Man of Hoy and Scapa Flow and finally to the capital Kirkwall.
Our passage north to Shetland may include the remote island of Fair Isle with Lerwick as our most likely northerly destination.
By allowing more time for these trips we are more likely to find the weather “window” we need for the long passages.
