    With a sea running you might find it difficult to identify the perches, and if conditions worsen it looks like this

    I've been through in a F6 W, heading south. it wasn't too bad, and the anchorage/mooring area seemed pretty well sheltered. It's the bit to the south, between Easdale and Cuan, which is generally worse, but even in F6 it was just unpleasant.

    I've been through with a sea running, but at mid tide. Was westerly perhaps F6-7. The area to south of the island looked worse! We didn't go to Cuan, so not sure what that was like, but Luing and Fladda were OK.

    All I'll say is, it's narrow, shallow and twisty! For the short run outside to the Sound of Luing, its not too bad.

    It can seem like a brave decision as you turn in, but it calms down very quickly. We are often glad to get out of the mayhem outside when heading home from the North.

    Just make sure you stay in mid-channel between the perches, or better, closer to the green perch.

    Thanks for the info and picture. Been through loads of times but looked a bit intimidating today. The crew were happy with the decision to retire to the T and T.
