DAY 2 – SUMMER ISLES
The summer isle consists of 15 islands, the biggest Island, Tanera Mòr, is the only inhabited island. This exceptional landscape is managed by the Scottish natural heritage and therefor protected against unwanted change. For spending the night, we drop our anchor in a sheltered anchor bay
DAY 3 STORNOWAY, LEWIS
A proper day of sailing to the capital of the Outer Hebrides
DAY 4 – LOCH ERISORT, EAST LEWIS
After a morning in Stornoway, we sail to the more southern Loch Erisort. While looking for a sheltered anchor bay you can enjoy plenty of the rough coasts and wildlife.
DAY 5 SHIANT ISLANDS
These three uninhabited islands are a fascinating destination, which we only sail to if there’s good wind. It’s allowed to visit the islands and during a hike you can admire the beautiful view. The Shaint is the nesting ground of a stunning 240000 puffins. These funny looking birds you can see up close so make sure to bring your camera! An absolute must for bird-lovers.
DAY 6 LOCH GAIRLOCH
We sail to loch Gairloch on the North west-coast of Scotland, depending on the direction of the wind we pick a sheltered anchor spot. In the Loch we have a view onto the beautiful loft landscape.
DAY 7 – ANCHORING IN LOCH BROOM
From our last anchor place in Loch Gairloch, we sail along the Northwest-coast back to Loch Broom where we enjoy the last evening together with the Captains diner.
