Stunning photos - good job there were no Land Rovers around eh???

You have access to some great cruising grounds - very jealous. I want to take my RIB up to the West Coast of Scotland one day - maybe even across to Ireland but I don't know if my stupid old Discovery will tow it that far.....

Probably break down a few dozen times I should think, apparently they are quite unreliable

Landrovers are good, but Codders, I never thought they were that exciting!....Hello Miss Frost - Codprawn has been a very naughty boy.

But what would a doctored photo of Gavins Redbay being towed by a Landie be worth

Gavin, great write up, good to hear about others adventures and a fab part of the world. Were you not worried about driving a rib through Belfast though, there are some really dodgy areas you know. You could have ended up here

Subrau Galore

We mostly saw Subraus and Shoguns, however to be fair we did see this Landy towing this 6 ton 11m Redbay
This is a passenger Humber which visits Corryvreckan and A waterfall on Mull
