Sounds great. We anchored at Plockton for the first time this year - super place.

The Stein pub is good and (I'm told) so is the restaurant: which were you in?

Should be around Mull this weekend: current plan is to drop off the hillwalking party in Duart Bay on Saturday, recover them from Scallastle or Fishnish then anchor in Loch Aline.

We'd lunch in the Restaurant.
I was working of an old CCC sailing directions which preceded the Green mark of the Cat(?) Rock at Plockton. After my initial confusion it certainly made things simpler. Kyle Rhea was fun with the SOG touching 9 kts at times.
We got water from the Pontoon at Kyle of Lochalsh - it would be a great place for a diesel pump!

Are you thinking of the working mens club at Loch Aline or the pub up the road?
Not really sure what we will do - the CCC muster sounds quite good although I find Loch Spelve a bit underwhelming.

My thoughts were the pub for dinner then the WMC for some serious drinking afterwards...
