I reviewed these notes in May 2021. Thanks to Peter Fall below for his comments; I have no changes. I've added Peter Fall's advice on Newton Haven in the Further Berthing Info but can offer no local knowledge on the approach.

Apart from changing the charts and the addition of a photograph of the nav marks at Guile Point no changes were made.
Farnes and Holy Island
Written by Peter Fall | 19th Aug 2016
Toured this area in early August and no need for changes.
An anchorage not covered is Newton Haven. It's certainly worth a visit if the tide and weather are right. Only disadvantage is the pub/restaurant is often fully booked so beer only and a bag of crisps
