Cruising Reports

Scotland Mile Builders, Harris or Lewis?

Picture is of Poll Scrot where we spent a night alongside a fishing boat. Only issue was that it pumped its bilges every hour against our hull and this induced the desire to urinate in one crew member. Solution was to place a Fender to break the flow of the water in both parties!
Despite being one Island the characteristics the people of Harris and Lewis are somewhat different with the strong Calvinist, Sabbath observance, Temperance culture of Lewis, contrasting with the more liberal folk of Harris.
During our third Scottish Mile building sailing trip we may well visit both and it will depend much more on the weather than the licensing laws. for those working towards RYA YachtMaster qualifications a pilotage into Poll Scrot is a very useful exercise.
