2023 May 29th Day 46 Opsay Basin to Taransay

Facebook Post:

I didn’t fancy the planned anchorage at Ensay so ended up at loch na Huide (auto corrected to Huddersfield, glad to have noticed), Taransay and its a cracker… and with sun!! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ St Kilda probably tomorrow.

Threading through the islets and rocks from the Cope passage to the
Stanton passage was interesting, I initially went to an anchorage
off Ensay but decided it was not for me and went on to an excellent
anchorage in Loch Na Huidhe, Taransay.
A more detailed view, interesting but straight forward pilotage
in benign conditions.
Turning to starboard out of the Cope Passage by the stbd hand
green Conical NW of Groay.
I could have done without the ferry which will leave this stbd
Lateral (NW Rodel Rks) close to starboard, there was a safe place
to wait to the east so I let the ferry past here rather than having
problems in the narrow entrance into the Stanton Channel at
Grocis Sgeir.
