Lovely spot.


You are, of course, quite right. For the first time we were there and the house was open for views, a lot more pretty on the outside than the inside. A gorgeous place though, would love to overnight there in the right weather

crinan canal closed!

bad news for some people, saw it on TOP (as I believe it is called, I do not know if my use of this is right but hey ho!) this is really bad timing/luck - some one's planned holiday is going to be affected, an unexpected challenging sail round the Mull for some! http://www.waterscape.com/features-an...

1974 CCC blue book

in our fantastic local charity book shop last weekend I found that very book - I did not even know it existed (shows what I know) have really enjoyed my reading so far of this book, really well written and like you say a lot has not changed - a whole load of new marinas though where there used to be...
