Around the North of Skye

Leaving Kyleakin Ti Gitu had a very light wind sail to the island of Rona, just North East of Portree. The anchorage on Rona is tight to enter and becomes very crowded with yachts in the summer. We anchored further out than the masses where there is plenty of room and despite bringing up a lot of kelp on the anchor there seemed to be good holding.
We went off in the dinghy fishing around the rocks and caught enough Pollock to ensure we became thoroughly fed up with eating it.
After a couple of nights we headed North and spent a night in Staffin Bay on the NE of Sky but bad weather was forecast so we decided to head for Loch Harport. This is a very deep loch with the village of Carbost at the head. There are moorings provided by the ‘The Old Pub’ and we spent a few days there waiting for the bad weather to pass and having a great meal in the pub.
