Approaching from the E, stay mid-channel between the drying rocks on the E side of Blind Mugford Tickle and the islands on the W side. If the drying rocks are not visible, favour the W side of the channel because the islands are steep-to.
When approaching from N via Arichat Tickle, keep to the E side of the channel at its narrowest part, because there are two uncharted rocks off the headland on the W side. The drying rock at the S end of Arichat Tickle should normally show. Pass W of it, because the E side is encumbered by ledges.
The anchorage is N of the drying rocks that form the E side of Blind Mugford Tickle. The anchorage is constricted by foul ground extending 60 yds N of the N drying rock and by a 3 ft patch 70 yds further N.
Once 80 to 90 yds past the N of the three drying rocks, turn E to pass through the 70 yd wide gap between the 3 ft patch and the foul ground to the S. Once past the 3 ft patch, anchor in 14 ft, sand and weed. Good holding with adequate, but restricted swinging room. There is good protection from all directions except the S.
The cabin ashore appeared to have been abandoned for some time.
