Boys weekend to Oban

Linda stayed home while Martin was joined by Martin Kean and Steven Walker for a boys weekend away. The Friday was howling winds so a shore day was spent with a trip to the Kilmichael Glen standing stones and Dunadh Fort then dinner in Lord of the Isles.

Saturday had an early departure originally planned for Jura, then Colonsay/ Oronsay, but eventually became outbound through the Corryvreckan, up past the west of Karerra to Camas Nathais north of Oban, west of the airport. A lovely anchorage with seals and a white tailed eagle soaring. Dinner was pie and potatoes and the boys watched the football with good signal.

Sunday saw a sail from Camas Nathais to Oban Transit Marina and Martin and Steven being tourists in Oban for a while before sailing down through Cuan to Airds Bay (which we found already in use) before anchoring in Loch Beag.

Finally, early on Monday morning we motored round into Craobh Haven, dieseled up, and the chaps headed home.

75 miles over three days.
