Hi Ian
looks great it was a great w/end I was up at tayvallich and the weather and boating were great especially Sunday Loch Sween was like milk pond. It was a wrench to pack and come down the road on Sun night. Hope this is a starter for a decent summer this year!

Hi Billy

Actually wondered if you turn up there, we saw 4 basking sharks up the east coast of coll. Hope your right about the summer,we've got the pub meeting booked to organise the next one to cory whirl,and fingals. It was me that ended that trip (couldn't handle the drink in the deliverance like pubs) also other things. Everyone was kitted out for another couple of days.
