Gosport – Tobermory – Oban

Scottish isles

Renowned for its rugged coastline and breath-taking scenery, the West Coast of Scotland and the Scottish Isles can be best explored from the water.

Leaving the Solent, this first leg takes you west, cruising along the South Coast of England, around Land’s End and then north, through the Irish Sea to Tobermory in the Inner Hebrides.

Typically on this leg in July, you can expect both upwind and downwind sailing. Explore the anchorages of the Inner Hebrides with a trip from Tobermory on the Isle of Mull to Oban on the Scottish mainland. The West Coast of Scotland is open to the Atlantic but it’s easy to find shelter to explore in the numerous anchorages. Expect inshore sailing with stunning lochs and beautiful scenery.
