Loch Corry

We left Tobermory at slack water, about 8am. There was a moderate SE breeze pushing Bonita onto the pontoon, with other much newer boats berthed close ahead and astern. However with Alastair pushing the bow out hard with the boathook, and a bit of juggling the engine controls we managed to leave without disturbing our neighbours. We tacked to windward all the way down the Sound of Mull, but had to motor the last couple of miles to avoid being pushed back by the tide. We then had a fair wind up Loch Linnhe, and have anchored for the night at Loch Corry. This is a remote and peaceful spot surrounded by huge hills. Two other gaffers are here, also heading up to the Caledonian Canal- Charlotte Elizabeth and Step Back in Time. Above is Martins picture of the boats in this isolated and picturesque anchorage. We all (Alastair, Tony, Sally, Martin and his dog Jack, and me)  had supper aboard Bonita.
