Tuesday 24th – Wednesday 25th – Kinlochbervie
Posted in : Oriole
Departed Kirkwall for superb sail to Scotland, navigation by Clare. Saw the first cetacean action of the trip (just a couple of dolphins) and reached idyllic anchorage in Loch Eriboll, which we left this morning for a very civilised rounding of Cape Wrath with moderate following wind and some sunshine. Tied up at Kinlochbervie where various parties swam, walked etc. Idiosyncratic shower facilities; there is just the one, you put a pound in the slot and the machine says you now have £132.67 credit, and there is a big sign on the door saying ON NO ACCOUNT WASH YOUR DOG IN THIS SHOWER.
