Loch Coruisk – Isle of Skye

All day charter

maximum 12 persons

Around the southern point of the Isle of Skye you will find Loch Scavaig and Loch Coruisk, the waters are enclosed on almost all sides by slopes of mottled granite and passing back from these hills, there rises the black and foliated peaks of the Skye Cuillin.

This full-day cruise with Minch Adventures departs from the Mallaig Yacht Pontoons at 10am and heading northwest, up past the mouth of Loch Slappin and then onto the Strathaird peninsula with its sheer cliff face which gives the appearance of a medieval castle disappearing into the sea and takes visitors to this beautiful anchorage into Loch Scavaig and right to the very mouth of Loch Coruisk  This landscape is not to be enjoyed only from the deck of a boat, but once at anchor, this cruise means visitors can take part in some hill-walking and exploration of the foothills, which provides many opportunities for memorable photographs of this tremendous landscape. Once back on-board guests will be served refreshments and a luxury packed lunch.

Apart from the majesty of Loch Couisk during this trip, visitors can expect a lovely place to enjoy some good fishing for such common species as large lythe, ballan wrasse, Pollock, saith, mackerel, and last but not least, wildlife that includes the popular seal colony that is resident at the mouth of Loch Coruisk.  In fact, when we shut off the engines and drift while fishing our vessel Cyfish allows visitors to view the wildlife of the Highlands and Islands with an intimacy that is difficult to achieve elsewhere.

This full day cruise of 8 hours to such a quiet and rugged location ought to tick all the boxes with landscape-lovers and nature enthusiasts alike!
