Sail with Steady from Oban to Ullapool as she explores the Isle of Skye and the lochs of this beautiful Scottish coastline.
There is just so much to take in and experience with a sailing holiday in the Hebrides. From bustling harbour towns to remote anchorages and breathtaking lochs, you won’t be short of things to do or see.
Sailing from Oban, Steady will aim North towards the Isle of Skye and onto Ullapool. Staying close to the coast as she sails Steady will explore the numerous lochs that form this beautiful part of the Scottish coast. Finding picturesque anchorages in sheltered waters.
Nestling at the foot of the Skye Cuillins lies Loch Scavaig, a sea loch with the waters of Loch Corusk pouring magnificently in. Following the trail, you will feel like you have walked right into middle earth.
This voyage allows you to succumb to the tranquillity of this breathtaking part of the world, knowing there is little to do but sail, explore ashore, watch birds and take in the scenery and the hospitality of this island community. Everywhere Steady travels, you will find that each island provides some good short walks of about an hour before setting sail and heading towards a new anchorage.
