More like 60+ltrs per hour or 2.5ltr per mile!

The cabin makes for great all weather boating we had a quick blast from Largs to Sandbanks Holly loch on Sunday for a pie, beer & watch the footy only wearing jeans & sweatshirts!

So whatever the Scottish summer throws at you it will be well covered!

Now, if you're realy clever you can sacrifice around 10 billion midges to appease the weather gods!

If you're up for a week we'll probably miss you, (we're up there later in August) but you could do a lot worse than to buy a copy of the CCC sailing directions.

Ah Paul stop it!! Its two months before I am up and you are wetting my appetite something rotten. Yes you can't beat Jura on decent weather and the two you show are certainly worth a visit especially after going thru the 'Corry'. Hope to bump into you at Easdale gathering.

Erraid at the Ross of Mull just before the Sound of Iona. I go there a lot when sailing, usually anchor in Tinkers Hole which is the next bay round and you can walk over to this place. Its fine to anchor in Davie Balfours in quiet conditons, in the rib I reckon you could probably just take a line ashore.

Bit like a game of poker this! Mull's good, but you can't beat Colonsay!
