    Default West Coast lift out and storage.

    Apart from Arisaig, what is the furthest north where lift out and storage is offered?.
    Mainland or Hebridean.
    There must be somewhere other than the Oban ones?
    Any clues?
    Thanks.

    Lochinver springs to mind. Can't immediately think of anywhere else.

    Thanks for that.
    I’ve seen boats ashore there but couldn’t find any sign of a commercial yard.
    I’ve e mailed the HM an enquiry.
    Will post any reply.

    Lerwick - far enough north for you? Fits your requirement for something on Mainland.

    Lochboisdale is pretty far west.

    Lochinver is operated by Highland Council who run the harbour, their harbours HQ is there. They take the boats quite a distance to a hardstanding behind the big fish shed truck loading docks. I have no idea what they charge but I am convinced that the harbour is really well run and they try really hard to accommodate yachties, worth asking them for details?

    Norman, I didn’t think Lochboisdale had lifting facilities.?

    Stornoway can lift as well but don't think there's anywhere immediately there for storage

    Yes, they have a travel-lift and hard standing. IIRC the travel lift is 25tons.
