I make it 31 nm further from Oban via the Sound of Harris. However, it depends on your plan. If you are going non-stop then via the Sound of Barra is quicker, but if you plan to day-sail it then the SOH route offers far more possiblilities, with potential stopovers at Tobermory, Canna, Lochmaddy, Taransay . . .

I've done it both ways, non stop from Loch Creran via Barra Head and day sailing via Canna and Taransay.

Must be some satisfaction landing at St Kilda, one of the things on my bucket list.
Lovely shape of boat you have.

Eamonn, surely you are too young to have a bucket list?

Aprox how many miles would it be from Tobermoray to St Kilda?

Entirely agree with you about the Co-op in Tob.

Pretty ambitious to sail to St Kilda from Tobermory in a bucket. Commendable, though.
