Small Isles & Southern Skye
North of Mull we round Ardnamurchan Point, the most westerly point of the British mainland, and head out into the “Small Isles” of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
We may visit the eccentric Kinloch castle on Rum or cross to Skye and the magnificent Loch Scavaig, tucked beneath the Cuillin Hills which rise a thousand metres straight up from our anchorage. There is a large seal population here and we are also likely to spot dolphins and porpoises. This short video starts at Loch Scavaig and features Canna and Rum before anchoring in Loch Moidart on the north coast of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. The short walk into Loch Coruisk is well worth the effort and we are rewarded with stunning mountain scenery and maybe sightings of eagles and deer.
