Plockton via the Skye Bridge -24th July

A great sail up from Inverie via the Sound of Sleat one big long beat without touching the wheel (or using the auto pilot.) Now at Plockton, another evening in sunshine ( though by phone camera is not doing it justice, an up dated pic will follow once we find wireless) A great days sailing F4 most of the way. :-)

Inverie - The Old Forge pub -23rd July

The Old Forge pub the remotest pub in the uk. 17 miles over 3 munros or by boat (we did'nt walk!) - away at 7 this morning to get to this lovely spot. -And had another sunny afternoon fishing and drinking G&T's :-) Sea food meal excellent - currently enjoying sunset & another hot choc!

The Isle of Muck -22nd July

Left Tobermory this morning and got got caught in torrential rain for while as we rounded the most westerly point of the uk - Arnamurchan point. Then had glorious sunshine all the way to Muck & it is still shining now. Muck is very quiet but with 38 folk what can u expect! Cooked my catch from the day before - nice ! And now settling down
To a hot choc - what a high life!

Tobermory - Mull - 21st July

Motored from Loch Lhinne in goergeous sunshine - water like a mill pond - Pam stll getting dressed and preparing breakfast. Finally arrived Tobermory at 12;30 - very early-but all but one of the morrings raken ! So we pounced on it !! Cafe Fish was fully booked since yesterday so as Dermots brief fishing activity was un productive , we shopped after the obligatory drink in the Mish nish . Rian and strong winds rocking boat now ! But eagerly waiting for Aberdeen Angus steak to be cooked
