Loch Leven

 

Despite storms Ellen and Francis, the weather remained fine towards the end of August. This enabled a trip to Loch Leven, onto Loch Don and finally to Puilladobhrain. This was the third attempt to reach Loch Leven, the previous two had been prevented due to the lack of time and “the weather”.

Using the ebb tide to sail past Port Appin


Entering Loch Don at high water. Would be interesting at low water and different from other lochs, more like an east coast estuary.

Around Lismore


 We had an initial day sail over to the Greag Islands from Dunstaffnage. After this we headed off for three days, staying at Loch Aline and Port Ramsey. The wind was quite light at times, so some motoring was required.
