As I write this there’s still enough snow on the hills for Scottish skiing, but recent warm days have got me thinking about one of my favourite summer activities; Sailing and Walking in the Scottish West Coast. The west coast of Scotland is perfect for this with great sailing, stunning sheltered anchorages, and great hills right by the coast.
No previous sailing experience is necessary, but there is plenty to do on board and everyone is encouraged to get involved. The experience can be very varied from a slow tranquil drift to an exhilarating roller-coaster ride. There is plenty of time also to see the wildlife and it’s definitely worth keeping your eyes open.
