The Corran Narrows up ahead?


Indeed they are.....



Is mud the soft smelly substance found every now and then adhering to the anchor when raised?

ps
I noted Shard's very fetching stern light that came on by itself at dusk last night.

Tidal Clock

Having suffered justifiable crew derision for grounding during one night at anchor some time ago. (the rock moved didn't it!) and suffering the frustration of trying to find out quickly what the state of the tide was and indeed what the actual time was, in order to determine how dire our situation w...

But no-one has offered its function. Looks like a rustic bus shelter to me. Do you get rustic buses that far north? Not a bus shelter......It has a dual function, one of which is a ferry shelter! There are no buses (rustic or otherwise) on Knoydart, if fact no overland vehicular access, apart from ...

BTW, is Inverie still served by Bruce Watt's converted MFV? Or is it getting a new pier just because everyone else got one for the new ferries? I don't know, would it be the one behind? http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm57/ghilliedoubal/DSCN6493.jpg here is the pier http://i293.photobucket.com/a...

Bingo, :D although it is spelt Inverie. (I hope).
I will post a picture of the new pier later.

Using the lawnmower must take a bit of doing. Or do they just throw up a sheep every now and then? It depends on how quickly they eat the sheep. :) The CDM regulations would have required the designer to undertake a Designer's Risk Assessment which should have included assessing the risk to operati...

Re: Want new pier?

I disagree. That possibility must rest with the lovely grass-roofed conveniences on the new pier at Inverie!. Am I going crazy? Apparently work has been in progress for 2 years yet I saw nothing when I visited in the Spring. This is Loch Nevis, Knoydart, yeah? The very same! I was there during the ...

A little? A little? It ruined it!


My understatement. One might substitute "a little" by "completely and utterly" but I didn't want to offend anyone. :)

Re: Want new pier?

The new piers at Eigg and Muck could well qualify for a west Highland joint eighth Wonder of the World. I disagree. That possibility must rest with the lovely grass-roofed conveniences on the new pier at Inverie! How the planners allowed the disfiguration of the beautiful little bay on Eigg by a ca...

Thread's getting a little Mucky ..... :) Port Mor on Muck. I know. I had some association with the new ferry pier and the blasting of the widening of the approach through the nasty rocks. I remember that the pilotage was very tricky going both in and out, having to line up the cottage with the hori...

I would be most happy to purchase one, in the knowledge that seeing one being flown (worn?) on a boat would signify a courteous, charming, helpful, skillful, knowledgeable, generous, tolerant, kind, environmentally aware, apolitical (eh?) skipper. Thus so I would have to fly one with a smudge, or pe...

Duncans is a likely place to meet!
