I'm booked in at Portavadie and still intend to go.weather looks OK.
Am planning to be in water at Largs for 9 am Saturday.
Had thought of visiting Tarbert and up Loch Fyne but wondered whether there is anywhere to put in at Lochranza.
What about round Arran on Sunday (nice lunch at Lamlash)if weather OK or Clyde if not so good.

Only 30 miles to Portavadie, worthwhile calling in somewhere for a visit en route.

Kames Hotel springs right to mind as does Rothesay. Have a good one.

Absolutely, want to drop into as many places as possible on way to Portavadie. Up for anything really - only issue is that i can't be in Largs before 10am as coming through from Port Edgar on Saturday morning. Kames Hotel and Rothesay definitely stops for one direction. Never been out on RIB on Clyde before, have been windsurfing there as a kid, but that was a LONG time ago ;-)
