Millport illuminations 26th Sept

Hi,
Just to see who is going?
We had planned to make a day of it but we unexpectedly recruited (Almost ran over then adopted ~ Modern day press ganging??? ) a new crew member and not sure how he will cope out on the water.
Our loose plan at the moment is to head over to Holy Loch for some lunch then back to Millport grab some dinner then watch the fireworks.

He is a pretty fearless little dog but he will be staying with his Granny so won't be going to the firework display.

Hi Kim

Not 100% certain if we will be able to make it to the Holy Loch - will depend on timings - will definately see you at Millport however!

Your new crew looks really cute - sorry we won't meet him on Saturday but I am sure we will catch up with him later.

Cya

Vivienne

Did anybody else go?

We arrived at the Pier at about 8.00pm expecting the fireworks to be 8.30ish.
Went to chip shop and fireworks started at 8.15? i'm almost sure they were later than that.
No Balmoral this year - not enough tickets sold we heard a local saying.
Millport was very quiet with only our boat, and 2 others at the pier.
Hope Millport have a better turnout next year.
Kim

We had one look at the weather Friday night and decided not to go. I am not sure what it was like down there sat but it was just as bad as predicted in Oban.
