Still a Redbay Cruise, but with five meters more legroom!
even a better option and cheaper as well due to shorter sea voyage. will have to look at the cost of flights.

a Redbay is fine, a good rib and the second best for me

The times I have been asked advice on Ribbing in Scotland this year is unreal, most people ask about Loch Lomond but I always say go to the Wide Mouth Frog in Dunstaffnage. Hope I'm giving the right advice as this place is pretty awesome.

Is that the Corry, Whisper? The more I look at that photo, the less I think it's a genuine pic. Not that I have an issue with that if it's obvious to readers - just curious...
