Skye to South Uist

Raasay Sound from Ben Tianavaig

Raasay Sound from Ben Tianavaig

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Plockton in the company of family and friends. They had wonderful weather throughout their week in Scotland, and it has continued since then. We went back to Portree for diesel, water, showers, haircut and two more hills, including the very fine Ben Tianavaig overlooking Portree bay, the haunt of sea eagles which we saw. Our next stop was Isle Ornsay in the Sound of Sleat after a lovely sail in a light northerly, from Raasay under the Skye Bridge and down through the Kylerhea narrows with the ebbing tide. Today we gave the new engine its first long run as we motored the 52 miles out past Rum and Canna and across the Sea of the Hebrides to Lochboisdale, South Uist. Perversely, the wind got up on our arrival and we are now swinging about at anchor just astern of the moorings in a gusting fresh breeze (Force 5).
