On Wednesday we saw a sea Otter off the pontoon in Loch Ranza and on Tuesday a common dolphin near Bute.
Fantastic area with almost no other boats around.
Its a lovely run - usually stop off a Loch Ranza (handy pontoon) and head up to the hotel for some refreshment.
Have not been on the mainline side of the Clyde. Will have to take a run over - always wanted to get up to Holy Loch and Rhu and around.
