A New Game

I hope this works - I have attached one of my favourite pics of my wee Rib - does anyone recognise the location?

You can try this with any pic of your Rib - as long as it has a prominent landmark in the picture!

Absolutely no idea where it is, but had to say that's a cool looking little RIB you got there!

Oh, and welcome to RIBnet!

Nice Try TimW!

TimW,

Nice try, you got the country right, but its not a loch, and it's a bit further south than Loch Fyne.

The location has been used in two recent drama series on TV, starring a well known 'ex-corrie'.

Any more ideas?

Jackeen - the water was Brill!

Hi Jackeen,

Nope, not fly rods, just uptiders! We just went fishing that weekend, but followed it up a few weeks later with a fortnight of tubing, kneeboarding, and wakeboarding (for those able to stay up). The fishing weekend was a cracker, and the following pic shows me doing my Lawrence of Arabia impersonation to avoid sunstroke on the second day.

Not Holy Island.....

Hi Brian,

Nope not Holy Island, you are going a bit too far south there!

Next clue..... When you go out the harbour, you can see the lighthouse off Belfast Harbour -- if it's a clear day that is!
