ingham, Dunbar [North Ber-
wick], Haddington, Preston-
pans, and Musselburgh.,— North
British Rly. (coast line).

574 m. 10 trains daily, in Ij to
21 hrs.

The traveller from the S. cannot
fail to be struck with the first view
of Scotland after passing Tweed-
mouth. The rly. is carried high up
on the hills bounding the valley of
the Tweed, so that you look down
upon the river, its junction with the
sea, and the town on its N. bank.
The rly. clears the valley, still main-
taining its elevation, by Robert
Stephenson's noble viaduct of 28
arches in a curve, 126 ft. high, and
nearly \ mile long (cost £120,000),
leading into

Berivick Junct. Station, occupy-
ing the site of the ancient historic
Castle, which it has nearly erased,
only a few fragments of walls and
towers remaining on the steep slope
running down towards the Tweed.
The view from the edge of the river
and viaduct is striking.

Berwick-on-Tioeed {Inns: Red
Lion, King's Arms.)

Berwick, from its position on the
frontier of England and Scotland,
was for ages the most important for-
tress in the N., the object of con.stant
struggles between the two nations,
and the scene of great events. The
most remarkable of these were the
sieges by Edward I., 1296, when the



[32] V. Hints for Yachtsmen in the Hebrides. Introd.

There is good anchorage not far from Millport, on the E. side of the
Cumbrae, at the ferry-house. A new pier has been built here.

GourocL On the E, shore of the Clyde going N., the best place
for anchorage is Gourock Bay. This place is more frequented by
yachts than any other ; but strangers visiting the Clyde will find
Eow more convenient and less disagreeable, — less crowded at the end
of the week.

RouK Row, on the Gairloch, is well sheltered and quiet. The
scene is enlivened by the villas on the N. shore, and beautified by
the woods of Roseneath Castle, which come down to the water's edge.
Row is close to Helensburgh, wdiere there is a station of the N.
British Railway, and from which numerous excursions can be made,
as the railway is worked in connection with the trains to Edinburgh
and Perth, and with the steamers on Loch Lomond. A steamer
sails from Helensburgh to meet the " lona," and there is constant
communication with Greenock. Yachts can be headed alongside
Row Quay, or Clynder Pier on the Roseneath side.

Lochs Goil and Lovg. These lochs are rather tedious for yachts
to ascend, the wind generally blowing either up or down, and the
water being so deep that an anchorage can only be got at the top of
each.

Kyles of Bute. This passage is of eas}^ navigation, except at the
Burnt Islands. There the passage that should be taken is the S.
one, as it alone is buoyed. It can easily be taken, with the help of
the chart No. 2174, price Is. 6d. It is not advisable for a stranger
to attempt to go through against wdnd and tide. .

Rothesay and Port Bannatyne are good anchorages, but for a
yacht the pleasantest place is to the W. of Colintraive Pier.

Loch Fyne. On the W. we have E. Tarbert. The loch is a small
Imsin, generally full of herring boats, and should not be entered. If
the weather is good, an anchorage may be taken to the S. of the
pier off a small pebble bay.

Ardrishaiy. The anchorage is good, though there are rocks in
the bay. Boats are charged Is. as dues for landing at the pier, but
this covers the whole stay of the yacht. Yachts of small tonnage
can be taken through the Crinan Canal. Inquiry should be made
as to the state of the water in the canal, as in a dry summer it
becomes very low. One of the best anchorages in the loch is the
N. side of the Otter Spit. There are anchorages almost anywhere
along the sides above the Otter Spit. At Inveraray beware of anchor-
ing where the bottom consists of sand run down by the river ; also
beware of a spit further down the loch than the qua}^

Mull of Kintyre to Caioe Wrath. The first places to rest at going



Scotland. Y. Yachts on West Coast of Scotland. [33]

N. are Lowlandman's Bay in Jura or Gigha. Giglia is not easy for
a stranger to take. It is unsafe to go between Gigha and the main-
land. The flood tide runs to the westward through Corryvrechan, so
when sailing past with light winds care must be taken to keep well
to the E.

Crinan is not a good anchorage, except in- settled weather.

In going through the narrows at the Slate Islands, called also
Scarha Sound, it is necessary to watch the tide. Should a vessel
not have a commanding breeze, a tide can be waited for at Blach
Mill Bay in going N., but coming S. there is no good anchorage out-
side the Sound nearer than Kerrera.

Vessels going N. have all along the coast a great advantage over
vessels going S., as the tide is always later the farther N. you go.

Ohan. The water is very deep. Fresh butcher's meat and sup-
plies of all kinds can be procured here.

Loch Leven. A few pleasant days can be spent here, visiting
Glencoe and Loch Leven. Vessels of any size cannot go through
the second narrows, but a boat excursion can be made to the Smoudie
Falls and the Serpent Water.

Sound of Mull. Loch Aline is a pleasant wooded loch.
The entrance is narrow, and the tide runs strongly. The whole loch
is seen from the entrance, at least as much as can be seen of it from
a yacht's deck.

Tobermory. A dull place — trout-fishing in Loch Risca. This
harbour is much frequented by yachts and coasters, as in summer ;
the wind often falls light at sun set,, and if it be near evening, vessels
require to give Ardnamurchan a wide berth, on account of the con-
stant swell coming in. Provisions can be got here. There is a
postal telegraph office.

Loch Sunart. A very long loch, but worth going up to Strontian.

Staffa. The tourists by the steamer see almost all that is worth
seeing, and a little is to be gained by going by boat. The view from
the summit of Staffa is hardly equal to the view from Dun Eg, in
lona. The only objects missed by steamboat tourists are a fine group
of pillars at the N. end, and the two caves west of Fingal's cave.

Jona. The tide runs very strongly between lona and Mull.
The sea fishing at lona is very good. All sailing yachts should come
to lona from the N., and if of large tonnage should lie-to off the sandy
beach at the N.E. end of the island, taking care always to keep to
the N. of and clear of the sandbank which lies off the Cathedral.
There is less swell off the N.E. end of the island than anywhere else,
so a vessel can lie-to here, and at night go for shelter to Loch Laich,
or to Seribly Bay on the N. side of Ulva Isle in Loch Tuadh.

[Scotland.] C 1



[34] Y. Hints for Yachtsmen in the Hehides. Introd.

The chart of the Sound of Mull (2155) contains Loch Tuadh,
and with it and No. 2617 it is quite safe to visit lona ; in fact, the
chart of lona is the best guide to the island, as it gives an accurate
plan of the whole of it.

There are so many rocks to the S.W. of Mull that it is rash for
a yacht to go to lona by the S. coast of Mull.

For yachts under fifty tons a good and safe but confined anchor-
age can be got in a narrow arm of the sea on the Mull shore opposite
the Cathedral. It is called Bull's Hole or Port Dearg. The shelter
is complete, but difficulty might be experienced in getting out
should the wind come in from the S.W. From Port Dearg there is
a passage out by the N. ; to go this way it would be necessary to
mark very carefully the rocks at low tide. The tide runs strong in
the Bull's Hole. The bottom is beautiful sand. The rocks around
are of the warm red granite of the Ross of Mull.

Eiqg. Not easy to land, and no anchorage.

Rum. The anchorage is in Loch Scresort, which is sheltered
from the prevailing winds, and though open to the N.E., the swell
is broken by a spit which runs out from the S. head of the loch.
This is a good j)lace to lie in all night, if you wish to run down to
Loch Scavaig, so as to be there early in the day, and if you do not
wish to sail all night.

Rum is very wet and squally, and the weather is often much
better outside than you would imagine it to be from what you ex-
perience at the anchorage.

Loch Nevis. The best anchorage is Tarbet, a creek on the S. side
of the narrows. The tide runs very rapidly through the narrows.

Loch Iloimi. This loch is quite worth going up, as it is not by
any means at all well seen from the entrance. From its tortuous-
ness this loch never has a tame view looking out to sea, and even if
it were, as far as its own sides are concerned, it never could be en-
tirely so, as its mouth is crossed by the Coollin ranges, when looking
out to sea. It is subject to sudden squalls, and is a narrow dark
loch. The best way to see it is to take the vessel to Barrisdale Bay,
and from thence to make an excursion by boat to the top, or else to
■vvalk to the top by the road which runs along the southern shore.
It is worth while to go quite to the top of Little Loch Hourn. There
are four narrows in this Loch above the Coir Islands, and although
large yachts go through them, all except the last, into Little Loch
Hourn, yet it is very unadvisable in case of delay, as no vessel could
safely beat through the narrows against wind and tide.

, Isle Oransay. Isle Oransay, on the Skye side of the Sound of
Sleat, is the usual anchorage for traders and yachts, being very safe

and having a lighthouse at its entrance. It is, however, uninterest-
ing, being too much under the land to afford a view of the Coollin
range, and yachts should rather cross over to Loch Hourn, if the
weather be fine enough to see the hills. The delay will be amply
recompensed by the scenery.

SJcye. Lock Alsh. No vessels should attempt to go against the
tide through Kyle Rhea ; but anchor for the tide at the Callerch
Beacon, on the N. side or off the mouth of the Kyle Rhea river, on
the S. side of the narrows.

At Castle ]\Ioyle, or Kyle Akin, the tide runs very irregularly.
This is a good place to have letters addressed to.

Loch Duich. Loch Duich branches off Loch Alsh, and can be
ascended. The scenery is very fine. There is a beautiful little bay
on the right-hand side, going up, opposite Eilean Donan Castle. The
loch is easily navigated. {See Chart 2676, price 3s.) Loch Long
cannot be navigated.

Loch Scavaig, Skye. No yachts should rashly go in to the in-
ner bay. There are iron rings fastened into the rocks. Yachts can
anchor farther out, or under the shelter of Eilean Sea. The bottom
of Loch Scavaig is of boulder clay, with Arctic shells. A yacht boat
can easily be carried up to Loch Coruisk. Should tliis way of see-
ing Coruisk not be desired, a yacht can anchor off the mouth of Loch
Sligachan on the E. side of Skye, in Balemenah Bay. It would not
be safe to enter Loch Sligachan, and little distance would be saved
from Sligachan Inn, as the head of Loch Sligachan is very shallow.
A carriage-road runs along the E. side of Loch Sligachan, and a car-
riage can be got from Sligachan Inn to take up a party. The car-
riage should either be ordered to Sconcer, and the party land there
from the boat, or else to the ferry, which crosses the mouth of Loch
Sligachan. From Sligachan Inn ponies can be got to Coruisk. The
sail from Sligachan to the N. of Skye is very enjoyable. Observe
the basaltic columns at Loch Staffin, and a curious perforated rock
at high-water mark, S. of Loch Staffin. The sound between Raasay
and Skye is more interesting than the sound between Raasay and
Applecross, which is called the Inner Sound. The sound between
Raasay and Rona is good. Observe at the N. end of Raasay, on the
E. side of the island, a curious cluster of huts amidst the rocks.

Loch Carron. There are rocks in the entrance, but the channel
is now buoyed since the railway has been opened. After the
entrance is passed the navigation is perfectly safe. {See Chart
No. 3639, price 3s.) There is a good hotel near the railway station.

Loch Torridon. This loch should be visited. Yachts can either
anchor at Shieldag, or go through the second narrow, if there is a



[3G] V. Hints for Yachtsmen in the Hehr ides. Introd.

breeze. There are no dangers. Ben Alligin is best seen from
Upper Locli Torridon. The best anchorage is on the S. side, in a
quiet bay called 01 Gorra More. {See Chart 3632, price 3s.) Be
careful, as there are two other bays on the same side, one of which
is narrow, the other shallow.

The anchorage at Shieldag is off the inn, under shelter of the
island. Beware of a spit which joins the island and the shore, and
anchor S. of it. The scenery of Upper Loch Torridon will quite
repay the time spent in going up.

Gairloch. The anchorage is usually off the pier, or on the
S. side of the loch. The sea fishing is good round the bays. Sea
trout may be got with the artificial minnow. This loch is hardly
praised enough in guide-books, and to a person coming from sea, or
to one who has sailed along the comparatively uninteresting shores
which stretch N. and S., it has a peculiar charm.

The Inn is very comfortable. A new and capacious Inn was
erected 1872 at Talladale, on Loch Maree. The distance is only 6
m. to Poolewe, so the yacht can be sent round, and the party cross
by carriage or on foot. The view of Maree from this road, and the
views of the Gairloch, are very fine.

Poolewe. Lochewe is free from danger. Anchor well off the
inn, as the loch is shallow. 6 m. from Poolewe is Loch Fruin,
celebrated for its Salmo ferox.

Loch Broom. Ullapool is a dull small village. There is a daily
steamer from this to Stornoway, and land conveyance to the Garve,
on the Skye Railway. There is good anchorage at Tannera, out-
side Loch Broom.

Lock Inver. Trout-fishing can be got in Lochs Fuin or Beanoch,
also in the rivers Inver and Kirkaig. Apply at the inn. The river
fishing is generally let. The boat of Loch Fuin is a Norwegian
skiff, and is very difficult to row against the mnd. The charge is at
present 2s. 6d. a day for the boat, 10s. a day for the river, gillie
extra. The fishing is best in autumn. The sea fishing is good.
Lobsters can be purchased here.

Badcoll. Great care must be used in going in. Use the
chart of Edrachilles Bay (2502), which chart also contains Loch
Glen Dhu, and Loch Glen Coul, commonly called the Glens. Glen
Coul is the best to go up.

In Kyle Skou the tide runs very strongly. There is good
anchorage on the S. side of the loch, inside the Kyle under the inn.
A hurried vis'it to these lochs, in case of detention, is advisable. A
yacht might anchor outside the Kyle, in " the small circular basin
inside the island," mentioned in Wilson's " Yacht Voyage," and the



Scotland. V. Yachts on West dast of Scotland. [37]

loclis be visited by small boats. Yachters should not miss these
lochs. The northern slope of the Assynt Hills is rugged and over-
hanging. There is a clean little inn at the Kyle, and a ferry. The
road from Loch Inver to Scourie crosses the locli at this ferry.

The hills which rise immediately beside the Kyle are not high,
and the Kyle is not parellel with the line of the glen between the
high hills, but is diagonal. These circumstances enable yachts to
get in general a start of wind through the Kyle. In the highland
lochs the wind generally blows up and down.

Handa Island. Very curious, and worth visiting. Considered
by many to be as much bird-peopled as St. Kilda. The cliffs are
very impressive, as seen from a small boat. The emerald water in
the caves contrasts beautifully with the warm red cliffs. A row
boat can be taken close in when the weather is fine. There are no
dangers off the cliffs, though there are rocks off the S. end of the
island. The report of a gun brings thousands of gulls and divers
off the ledge of the rock, and cormorants out of the dark caves.

The chart of Loch Laxford (2503) includes Handa, on a large
scale. Tlie island is circular, and about 1^ m. in diameter.

Herd Point. At this, the point next to Cape Wrath, there is a
detached stack, nearly as good as the one at the Storr Head.

Loch Laxford. The nearest good harbour to Cape "Wrath, and
one of the most individual lochs in the Highlands. Shallow at the
top, numerous creeks all the way up, granite islands and peninsulas,
with good anchorages. The scenery somewhat similar to the Eoss
of Mull, only on a larger scale. The echoes are extraordinary. The
best anchorage is in the bay behind the Crow Island, going in by
the E, end of the Crow Island. In June 1871 there were twenty
vessels lying there.

Loch Eriholl. There is good anchorage to be got on the E. side
of the loch at the ferry house. A Pict's house has l^een partly
excavated here by Mr. Clark, the tenant of the sheep farm.

Whiten Head. As seen from the sea this cliff presents a fine
series of caves. It may easily be recognised by its white colour, and
is an excellent landmark by which to fix Loch Eriboll. Loch Eri-
boll is the only first-rate anchorage in going to Orkney after leaving
Loch Laxford.

Orkney. Great caution must be used in going through Hoy Sound.

A short visit may be paid in a yacht to Orkney and much seen
by the following route. Enter Scalpa Flow from the Pentland Firth,
by Hoza Sound. There is a lighthouse. A pilot may be obtained
at WidewaU or Long Hope. From either of these harbours sail to
Scalpa Bay, which forms the S. harbour of KirkwaU. Thence sail to



[38] VI. Skeleton Routes. Introd.

Stromness, and return S. again either througli Hoy Sound, or go
back again by Long Hope.

A boat can be got on Loch Stennis. If the water is not too
muddy the fishing is good. Along with the fishing excursion the
Standing Stones may be visited.

The telegraph is connected with Orkney and Shetland, but not
being postal, the charge is 6s. to England or Scotland for twenty
words, and Is. 6d. for every additional five words ; excej)t to Moss
Bank, CuUa Voe, Uya Sound, and Balta Sound in Shetland, the
rates to which are 7s. for the first twenty words, and Is. 9d. for
every additional five words. A telegram can be forwarded to Thurso
by post.

Salmon. Salmon and grilse can be purchased at the fishing
stations at Gairloch (in Eoss-shire), Poolewe, Portree, Sandwdck near
Stornoway, on the N. side of the loch, and sometimes at lona, where
they are brought to be shipped by the steamer.
