The wind was howling all day, and the main ferry was diverted to the Upper Clyde. There's a photo off Bute. It was V. Rough.
Terrible weather? Wait till spring arrives...
Next time you're over, call in - we should have 'Cowal' back in a couple of weeks
One of the guys off the ILB lives in the village (yes, /that/ guy - wanna buy a used boat?
) - they decided that Whiting Bay was far enough, as the CGs were reporting gusts of F10 down here.
