Great report and pics... we only managed a miserly 60+ miles (and no beer) over the same number of days in August operating just south of Crinan.

Interested to see you have the same age/version Mariner as my 20hp on our GRP boat. They are a cracking engine and go amazingly well for their age.

I was wondering if this happened yet ? , I am in the planning stages of a similar "Camping - Rib" trip in the N.W Scotland next summer (June/July) , No firm dates or places as yet. (25/26th june will coincide with the RB12 round britain race at kyle of lochalsh)

The basic Idea is leave from Kyle of lochalsh area , travel around skye, east coast of Uist ,(St kilda if weather permitting) Harris , lewis , back to the mainland around Kinlochbervie , back down the west cost ,Wild Camping All the way in tents.

As I sy its still in its planning stages as yet ,and due to weather restrictions the route may(and probibly will change nearer the time) If anyone is interested.?
