I think it must be a panoramic picture to get that wrap around. Initially I thought the Corran or Connel bits but there were no wee islands.

I made Loch Feochan fit but then looked again and realised I'm talking out of my transom :shock:
Agree Cuan with Wullyum

Remember years ago being anchored in Ardinamir and walking over the hill to Cullipool where there was a wee cafe.

Oh yes. "You should be able to throw a digestive biscuit and hit the rock". Signed the book too.

Seems such a long time ago. Can remember had just bought my first flat and was skint. My dad's friend George Bodie offered a wee cruise on the west coast from Bellanoch on Lady Nicola of Kent he took me through the Dorlinn for the first (and only) time. 1982 I think.

My former GP and close friend Dick Jackson first introduced me to the area at that time - he bought debentures or whatever in Craobh - then lost it when they went bust but he kept his boat there SeaRowan - a Macwester Rowan Crown. We did the 1984 Scottish 3 Peaks race in a Sigma 29 (Greensleeves) chartered from Rhu and did ok but White Lightning, a Sigma 33, went on to win it. Jon Fitzgerald was helming - I think he was about 12 at the time!!. Dick subsequently bought White lighting and had some great years sailing up there - the boat always lived in Craobh and Alastair looked after her. Dick sadly died a few years ago 2003, I think, whilst sailing in the frozen North. Last time I saw Jon he was managing the marina on Kerrera - Alastair is probably still at Croabh.

My first time in Ardinamar was in 1969, when I was a teenager, crewing on a motor yacht called Marona, owned by Don Maclachlan. At the time I thought he was a very old man, which is why I was surprised to see his obituary in the Herald newspaper 35 years later. We went ashore to pay our respects to Irene, had tea, and signed the book. I got a card from her the following Christmas.
