It wasn't on their web site when I looked, so not many people will see it - which will save some embarrassment, I'm sure. Thankfully the occupants were not badly hurt, but I think the boat was. Sad really, I saw it briefly from my window a while back. Looked good, like them all.

OT 10 Aug., page 8.

They hit Heather Island in Kerrera Sound - in the dark. Ended up ten feet above sea level. Be funny if it wasn't so sad.

Cheers Tony

Did'nt stop at Craobh Haven this trip but went there last year.
I have been going to Puffin Divers for a number of years now done quite a lot of diving with them and have always found them to be very efficient and always very helpful its very useful to be able to get petrol on the quayside

Yes we did get to Corryverecken the standing dogs where just starting to build up we went through them last year no one was keen to repeat the experience
The weather was kind to us rained for about two hours on one of the days we were there but we did have a bit of wind so a lot of the trips were a bit rough
