Afternoon Cruise Overview

 

On leaving the pier we head across to the south side of Loch Broom, Altnaharrie. Sailing outward from here we visit Cormorant Rock and the nesting cliffs at Mussel Bay before entering Annat Bay beside the seal colony at Eilean na Mile. At Mussel Bay Red Breasted Merganser ducks can be seen in their nesting environment.

Once in Annat Bay we head across the loch, viewing the Summer Isles and Ben Mhor Coigach mountain and on to the nesting cliffs of Isle Martin which is home to a wide variety of sea birds, herons, buzzards and peregrine falcons. This provides an excellent opportunity for close up photography.

 

Our next port of call is Dun Canna, a Pictish fort dating back several thousand years, though little remains but piles of stones and the tidal sea trap.
 

Heading on into the anchorage of Isle Martin we pass close by the pens of the salmon farm. A wealth of history is attached to Isle Martin. After sailing round the anchorage we pass over the shallow causeway linking Isle Martin to the mainland before re-entering Loch Broom and head for home. Throughout this cruise a variety of birds, porpoise, seals and other wildlife can be seen in abundance.

 

This is a great trip for those with less time to spare and want to see the beautiful coastline, wildlife, Islands and mountains surrounding Ullapool and Loch Broom.
