I have a friend who until recently ran and cheffed a local quality waterside eatery.

He can offer a private high quality (scallops 'n stuff) barbecue for small groups at £15 per head.

The T&T is not offering meals at the moment, so this might provide an alternative for a 'last supper'

Anchorage/moorings available behind Heather Island (Kerrera) or on the pontoons at Ardentrive if you prefer.

Anyone interested, or were we thinking of ending up somewhere else on the Sunday?

Sounds Interesting - there is also a 'do' at Ardfern on the Saturday. Its a Fundraiser for MacMillan -
There's a hog roast but it would be necessary to book through Guy Neville in the chandlery

Hog rost at Ardfern sounds good if that's the way the wind blows us.

I'm all in favour of MacMillan but even more in favour of Cancer Research - for fairly obvious reasons.

Can I remind anyone who hasn't done so yet that you can donate to cancer research in Kathy's memory?

I've sat in the trousers or The Lord of the isles eating fish & chips because you can't really screw that up, can you? There just isn't the throughput in these places to climb the culinary scales. One year, a load of us went into a Thai restaurant which you just knew would be utter sheight at £40 a head. I'd argued that a very good authentic Thai meal could be got from the raw materials at the local shops but some looked pityingly on me so bolx. I've a picture of wee James aff his heid outside this place.

If I got off with £15 a head for a meal without booze these days I'd go for it. If you wanted, say big langoustine in a Thai sauce (or scallops although if there was an option I'd go for the langoustine) to start and approx 350gm each of turbot with decent veg, you'd only just get off with 15 a head for the shellfish and wet fish from those rapacious fishmongers in Oban. (Sea bass cheaper alternative to turbot and just as good after several pints of 50/-)
