A family holiday snap from a Clyde cruise many many years ago.

Where was I? (I honestly cannot remember)

I reckon Tarbert too, towards the entrance, looking South. The cottages look familiar.

I thought looking North, isn't that Bill Leach's place just infront of the mast?

It could well have been Tarbert, we did go there on that trip

Smart yachting gear in those days
