Awkward entrance. Best to traverse on a rising tide and give the poles a good offing.

Thanks for the update on the buoyage below. My apologies for the description of the old system - it was added for the humour. If you have a smallish boat you might like to negotiate with them for a mooring closer in to the pier - those visitors buoys are a long row if you don't have an outboard on your punt.

Mooring numbers on buoys
Written by HGS | 4th Jul 2022
Update to information about locating your allocated mooring: The mooring numbers are now (2022) painted in large characters on the mooring buoys, which are mostly orange.
There are also now some dedicated visitors’ buoys - yellow, marked with a V - at the outer (western) edge of the main mooring area.

I reviewed these notes in June 2021. Not many changes but our chartlet of the moorings bound to be out of date - I'm waiting for them to supply a new one

Leaving Arisaig into the open sea can be very unpleasant after a blow ,especially with wind over tide. It lasts for a mile or so until you reach deeper water. If there is enough depth,you can retreat to anchor in the stretch on the W. side of the passage just after the (current in 2019) second red perch and wait for the tide to turn.

Update July 2017

The Number 1 port perch has been removed so that there are only the two on the left as you enter the channel.
