    Sound of Islay flows North at 16.42.  To be  on water as soon as we can make headway. Launch point is metres from where ferry docks.  Camp as far North East as we can get ! ie Glenbatrick ? or Ruantallan bothy area (bothies are still closed)

    Obviously this is all weather dependent. 
    Corrryveckan westerly flow (flood) on wed 26 is 16.57 so would mean a crossing of sound of Jura. Westerly on Thursday 05.41 and 18.17 and on Friday 28 (neaps) is 07.14 and 2012 --not helpful.
    All calculations based on Oban meteo Consult Marine Tides and tidal streams from Clyde Cruising club Kintyre to Ardnamurchan.
    If anybody knows of any likely wild camping spots please let me know.  Ferry is £6.90 one way. I will keep an eye on availability  Have confirmed they are still taking sea kayakers.
