hi, really nice bit of video.
looks really good when the lochs as quiet as that. we have just registered our new boat on LL and plan to launch it next weekend and start the tedious 20 hr break in on the engine.. so if anyone else is out would be glad of some company.

Looks like a good trip....good to blow the new year cobwebs away!

Here's a photo of the same view two summers ago......Proof that Scotland can get good weather (sometimes!)

Would love to K&S but the good ship is high & dry due to technical problems
