Loch Crinan

Leaving the Sound of Mull we passed Duart Castle, the ancestral home of Clan Mclean, demolished by Clan Campbell in the 1690’s it has since been re-acquired and re-built by Clan McLean. Remarkable as the stones were scattered by Clan Campbell.


The castle featured in ‘Entrapment’ and also in Buffy.

Just to the south of the castle is this lighthouse, built by his friends, as a memorial to the Scottish novelist William Black.


On the other side, to the north, looking up Loch Linnhe toward Fort Willian & Ben Nevis.


And lastly our anchorage for the night, Loch Crinan. This is the start of the Crinan Canal, a short cut to the Clyde. But we are too big so it is the long way for Kapowai.
