Red Moon

January 29, 2019

I mentioned a special trip that we took last summer aboard Red Moon, and I said at the time that she deserved a post all of her own! So here we are! If you’re planning a visit to Skye this year, or even if you live on, or nearby the island, with maybe something to celebrate, then you could enjoy a wonderful experience aboard Red Moon, with very special hosts, Scott and Mary. They are a professional yacht crew, with many years experience, and are passionate about sharing their love of the scenery, history and wildlife of this small part of the world.


They provide bespoke cruises; anything from a lunch cruise, a night at anchor or a lengthier cruise around Skye, the Small Isles and Scottish West Coast. Red Moon is a vessel which is lovingly maintained, both outside and in. Inside she is furnished both practically and tastefully.

The first time we stepped aboard, was in 2017, to celebrate Kevin’s birthday. We chose the ‘Night at Anchor’ short cruise, departing from Kyle of Lochalse , (just over the bridge from Skye), mid afternoon and sailing to a sheltered bay on the west coast of the mainland. The weather wasn’t great so we couldn’t eat outdoors, but the stylish,  pristine galley was a lovely venue to sample Mary’s superb cuisine. She takes great pride in providing dishes using fresh, mainly locally sourced ingredients, which she obviously prepares with great care. We stayed in the bay overnight, returning to Kyle by lunchtime the following day after a delicious breakfast.


Our second cruise however, the weather was clear and hot. Kevin even braved the chilly waters! Scott took us ashore for some pre-dinner beach combing and on this occasion, conditions were perfect for some alfresco dining!

We were anchored in Loch Kishorn, just off the West Coast, our view towards the mountains, which embrace the Pass of the Cows, the spectacular route to Applecross which we regularly recommend to guests at Garybuie.

WOW!

 

A truly wonderful experience, with delightful scenery, accommodation, food – and of course, company!

Our return the following day was equally stunning, seeing the Skye Bridge from a totally different perspective than our more usual view atop four (or two!) wheels!
