BIBOA Hebrides Cruise

I am sure others have their favourite photos taken on this outstandingly beautiful cruise.
Here is one of mine of Duart Castle at the eastern end of The Sound of Mull in the Inner Hebrides.

This one is of Murray McCloud's WWW.SEATREK.COM at The Butt of Lewis, the most northerly point of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

or how about this one of Little Loch Roag, North Lewis. It is a long slim Loch with an extremely narrow entrance.
But beautiful and still in the early evening.
Moored to bouys are Hot Lemon 4, Still Deep One and Camel Trophy 1.

Lovely shots Brian, I am so jealous we could not make it, but I am sure Jim and Yvonne will organise a similar one next year if there is enough interest.

It was indeed one of those "Cruise of a lifetime" opportunities.
I am going to stop posting photos here now to give others a chance to contribute.
I ONLY took 197 photos so it could get (even more) boring if I carried on.

Oh. OK I can't resist it any longer. Here are two more piccies.
A word of explanation though. These were taken driving into Little Loch Roag on Lewis. The entrance is very narrow and dangerous. It runs in a channel about a mile long and in parts only about as wide as a two-lane country road. It is festooned with rocks (most just below the surface and unmarked on charts) and twists and turns like crazy.
It is not advisable to enter at speed without local assistance!!
I had the pleasure to be on Mike Deacons boat, Hot Lemon 4 and our entrance through this narrow gap at 35-40knots was one to be savoured for a lifetime.
Still photography cannot do justice to this thrilling ride, however, it's all I've got to show you.......

Thanks for the photos

Brian,
Great pictures. The old saying comes to mind..."wish I were there!"...or something like that.
