Scalpay north harbour pontoons: toilet/shower provision, water and electricity on the pontoons. Diesel available by arrangement. Community managed cafe/restaurant is very busy in the evenings and needs to be booked in advance. No shop but there are buses to/from Tarbert. There is a small submerged r...

Re: Nearest Measured Mile To Craobh Marina

Cannot think of any in that area, so I suppose the nearest would be in the Clyde at Arran or Skelmorlie.

Re: Ignorance

I have visited both Shetland and Orkney (and Fair Isle) so I have a good idea where they are. :) (Decent distance from the Clyde- or Norway) Perhaps not everybody should be visiting, they would be over-run, but Bluemoment folk certainly should try to have a trip up there at some point. Yes, Lerwick...

Re: Cumbria to top of scotland and back in my bradwell 18

Hi Steve, you fairly get about.

Re: Change of boat

Well, if you're heading west again, I suppose that "Fulmair of Such-and-Such" would be as good a name as any. ITU already has a "Fulmair"

Re: Camping Gaz

Our local cowp has a locker full of empty red propane bottles that have been dumped for recycling. Assuming that they'd be cheaper than entering new contracts with Calor Gas, I offered to buy a couple but was refused as the council couldn't take responsibility for the (very small) safety risk involv...

However, it seems to me that the Caribbean hurricane season is progressively having...
