Sure is Stoo. We keep it secret. You have to be a nice person to find out about such places :-). You're right. Could be the Carribbean - until you touch the water. Then you know you're 56 deg. north. :-) By August, with a rising tide over hot sand a five minute swin might be comfortable - just.

Cheers Tony

Yep. Super on such a lovely day. I think the water comes straight from the Carribbean via the Gulf Stream. So tempting 'till you dip your toe in it. :-). Still, sitting where I was I was sweating in a tee shirt. No people either. That place is really busy if there's someone else on the beach.

LOL.. That sounds like our Tobermory too. I love to hear tourists shreek when they jump into the lake in front of my place.... By late August, the surface might hit 15C... but 6" down it's a very different tale...

Certainly not the place to impress the ladies when wearing a Speedo!

Second Picture is Just off the bathing pools at La Valette Guernsey

Third is Zap cat racing just outside of St.Peter Port Harbour

You mean Robyn - our apprentices young lady?
Lucky boy, in more ways than one. I spent six months toing and froing Cascais managing repairs on a big ketch that we damaged in a storm coming up from Gib. There's a nightclub next to the marina that operates a ticket system for drinks. You're given a card on entry, the barstaff make a mark for every drink and you pay when you leave. The two young deckies used to jump off of the balcony onto rocks and nip back to the boat having had a cheap night out.

The place is locally known as David Balfour's Bay, because it's the place where the hero of RLS's Kidnapped was washed ashore after being shipwrecked on the Torran Rocks. It's on the south side of Erraid at the west end of the Ross of Mull.

If you type Fidden into Google maps, choose the satellite view and scroll south, you'll see the bay and two beaches. Iona's just round the corner.

That was the longest trip yet in my RIB, 35 miles from home. Time, erly June this year. Saw porpoises, dolphins, lots of guillemots, razorbills, a couple of puffins and diving gannets. Great day out - could've stayed overnight if I'd had the time.

Tony
Stunning photos I thought I had seen a fair bit of Scotland over the years considering I go there so often but it is such a magical place it still holds so many surprises I have to say when I visited Iona it was a hot glorious summer day and a place I will never forget this is one of Ballachulish

2006 highlight for me was the SW Rib Noobers trip to the Scillies in June, the weather was fantastic, just a shame I haven't managed to get back there since
