Hi Craig, Does the hotel have a pontoon? otherwise how did you get to the hotel? Do you have a tender on-board, beach the boat or swim in?

Cheers

Bute and the Kyles are a beautiful part of the world, practically brought up there as my family has many ties to the island. Will be heading out round the Kyles soon I hope.

Plus one to that mate go back as often as possible. You can take the boy out of Bute but you can't take the Bute out of the man!

Hey Craig,
Might be out on a steak pie hunt on Sunday, Holy Loch most likely. I passed you on the princess in the channel when you were coming ino the marina last Saturday. I thought you were going quite slow and gave me me plenty of room then I saw it was your lady who was driving! Your usually on the plane half way up the marina!
