Scottish anchorages

Lower Loch Linnhe

Photo gallery Lower loch Linnhe final View from Onich

It is tremendously dramatic to sail up Loch Linnhe on a good day. Wonderful mountains closing in all around with beautiful broadleaf woods along Upper Loch Linnhe, particularly on the east side. But there are surprisingly few anchorages north of Lismore, at least delightful ones, even up Loch Leven which gets even more dramatic with views up Glen Coe to the well known mountains — Bidean, the Ballachulish horseshoe and so on.  There are some pretty impressive places to eat and one could even construct a rather good week-long gastronomic cruise taking in the Pierhouse and Airds Hotel in Appin (one on the way there, the other on the way back), the Holly Tree House Hotel in Kentallen, the Loch Leven Seafood café, and the Crannog and the Lemon Tree in Fort William on Upper Loch Linnhe.

"In Loch Linnhe one is not at sea at all. Surrounded by great hills, green valleys, and pleasant woodlands, the loch is more of the land than of the sea. Not the ocean, but the bens are masters here." John McLintock 1938
