Ardnamurchan and Tobermory have historically always been linked by sea. In the past boats sailed from as far as the head of Loch Sunart collecting at all points west eventually going through to Tobermory. As you relax in the stress free environment of a boat, you will be recreating the traditional route to Tobermory, including in particular the picturesque detour around the remote island of Carna. On the way you will be introduced to the local populations of wildlife which could include eagles, otters, porpoises and seals, as we do on our popular Sunart trips.
This trip is also perfect to take the Tobermory distillery whisky tour which runs every hour on the hour, booking advisable in the season.
We leave Laga bay at 10:00 at leisurely wildlife pace taking in the water around the Island of Carna, with otters, common seal colonies and eagles circling the peaks. We aim to arrive in Tobermory around 12:00, giving you two hours to explore the waterfront and take lunch in one of the many restaurants or eat alfresco with Tobermorys’ famous fish and chip van by the clock tower.
Returning around 14:00 we sail close in to Aulliston Point and the North Morven shore past Oransay and through Risga channel. Before returning to Laga we detour to the cliffs of Carna to see the nesting shags and the flighty kestrel.
