I remember one year seeing a Swedish Military boat in there launching and recovering a submersible, and always wondered what they might have seen there... mmm
Naval ships used to anchor there regularly in the seventies - we saw them when holidaying on Bute. I wonder if there is any equipment down there to help detect the USSR submarines which were said to come sniffing around the Clyde?
Sometime when I am looking for a project I shall take Jumblie
round and trawl the bottom with a small anchor on a tripping line. It can't all
be foul, and it could be a nice stop on a good day.
Top tip: the café at Ettrick Bay is open year round and is really, really good. Everything is home-made and it's the only place I have found on Bute which realises that bacon tastes better when it's grilled and not dumped in a deep fryer...
