Port Bannatyne Post Office. Free to customers and you can pick it up from the moorings. But please and seriously, folks, go and have a coffee if you're going to do that. 'Snot fair otherwise.

The County of Argyll's public libraries; made use of the facilities in Campbeltown and Oban. Incidentally, you don't need to live in the county to hold an Argyll library card.

Interesting point, not sure. I can easily imagine a sentence like "Well I prefer the The Glenlivet to the Dufftown Glenlivet", but maybe that's a special case?

If you wrote the "the The" "the the" the "the the Glenlivet" would be rather confusing.

An Teallach is a hill. The An Teallach is a pint. Useful to be able to tell the difference.

Rothesay - Calmac has a free system, but it shuts down when the ferries go to bed.

Cruising, racing, maintenance facilities. Go take a look, you know you want to.

This message is brought to you courtesy of the free wi fi provided by The Oystercatcher, Otter Ferry, Loch Fyne.

The signal strength out on the moorings isn't very good, and I lose the signal when a mast gets between me and the buildings - I should have picked a better position - there is plenty of choice at the moment.
