From the cover: “The unique attraction of sailing in the west coast of Scotland, apart from the pure pleasure of voyaging between the anchorages described in this book, is that it allows a yachtsman the satisfaction of arriving at his port with the feeling that he has also discovered it. In The West Ronald Faux gives a personal impression of a selection of anchorages on this coast, illustrating them with his own charts, photographs and drawings. His account is laced with anecdotes of near disasters and historical events, as well as descriptions of the small ports and communities, the deep sea lochs and the islands which abound in the area. Not only will the book serve as a useful companion on board but as a prod to the memory when the wind howls, the fire roars and all wise owners have their boats decently wintered ashore.”
