Sailing along the Inner Hebrides

July 6-7, 2021

After we had said goodbye to Sanuti we got up really early to start sailing towards the Caledonia Canal, a canal that allows to you to sail through Scotland instead of around.

A calm sunny day with a pretty lighthouse in the sound of Jura.

It was to far a distance to do in one day, and you also have to time certain narrow passages with the tides. We anchored at an anchorage on the northern tip of the island Luing for the night. It was a very pretty anchorage. It was a calm evening, there were cows walking on the shore, a seal swimming in the anchorage.

Pretty and calm anchorage.

The following morning we got up, made sure to time the passage between Seil and Luing, the Cuan sound. See page Our Route to see our route. We made it through this narrow sound without any problem and continued towards Corpach.

Pretty with all the mountains all around.

We arrived to Corpach in the evening, after the locks had closed. So we tied up on a pier outside and took a walk around.

We took a look at the locks we would go up through the following morning.

We ate dinner at the boat and then headed to a bar to watch some European Championship football. We had some beers and then went to sleep.
