If space for boats is an issue I can easily store them at mine.
Ok! i've spoke to kilmartin cottages & caravans today they have only 2 cottages & 2 caravans you can only book these next year at the start of season most of the campsites up there only take up to 4 man tents so for those who fancy Mallaig or Arisaig next year may struggle to book anywhere so option 2 for accommodation could be Oban caravan park again as we already know is a great site & easy boat launch & trailer storage at puffin divers, then up towards skye & do a few of the islands & coast line up there, any thoughts on option 2 for those who want to do the trip probably head up there again at spring bank cos we did get some great weather

Oban again wouldn't be too much of a Chore!! Andy
It would Be nice if we could maybe get All the Lodges in the Row if we do decide to re-visit!
We always have the option do some exploring/rough camping further afield.. even if it meant trailing the Boats somewhere for an Hour or two...?

We're more than happy to do Oban again, it's a place we like & makes a good base for exploring further afield. I'm sure there's plenty of stuff we didn't see this year, including that fkin big rock We'd probably be tempted with a lodge next year, they looked good value if 4 were sharing, a bit easier for entertaining too
