2023 May 14th, Day 30 Scallastle Bay to Loch Aline

The forecast indicated that there would be no reasonable chance of getting to the Outer Hebrides any time soon and with NW winds forecast I decided to move to an anchorage with more protection for a couple of nights before moving to Tobermory for laundry and resupply. Loch Aline was the perfect place and close by which was useful as my back was (and still is) playing me up and I did not want to do anything to make it worse.

"Provident" a fine old gaffer beating up the Sound of Mull
Best to turn off the sound, just lots of wind noise. 
Entering Loch Aline through the narrow channel and 
sometimes very busy entrance.
Baby seals, if I had known they would turn up I
would have anchored a bit closer to the reef.
A popular large anchorage, well protected from most
direction and quite attractive, lots more pictures below.
