The West Coast of Scotland is one of the world's finest cruising grounds. It offers magnificent, unrivalled scenery with an abundance of beautiful and secure anchorages. The sailing is great, with plenty of sheltered water, or, if the open sea beckons, you can cross to the Outer Hebrides, or even to the remote and dramatic archipelago of St Kilda. There are literally hundreds of islands to visit: Skye, Mull, Coll, Tiree, Iona, Colonsay are just a few other examples.
The wildlife is abundant and fascinating: whilst birds like guillemots, puffins and razorbills are common, you may be fortunate enough to spot the very large and impressive sea eagle which has a wingspan of up to 8 feet (245cm)! Whales, dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks are regularly seen in the area.
