Inlets and Islands of Wild Argyll Cruise
6-night cruise departing from Holy Loch on April and May 2013
This cruise visits many unspoiled places which can only be accessed by boat. Anchorages have been chosen for their beauty, tranquility, natural environment and wildlife and the opportunity to go ashore for a walk or visit a remote historical monument. Many anchorages are also excellent for catching crab and maybe even a lobster. The Mull of Kintyre and Ailsa Craig are possible anchorages but this will be weather dependent There is a wide choice of many delightful stopovers on this cruise, but the decision on which to visit will depend on wind direction and tide and will be at the discretion of the skipper. Typical highlights of this cruise are:
