Fizz = physiognomy noun (plural physiognomies)

Loose ends = The bits unsecured below cuffs and kilts

Yes, we are!

I have to say in the past we had a fair few midges in the Highlands, but we just got on with it.
In 2011 we spent a week at Loch Linnhe and there were hardly any there.

My wife has been using the Avon product mentioned previously, I will report on how we are getting on with the boat etc when we are there.
(I am told the accommodation has internet/wifi access)

It looks like there are plenty of places to explore,both on the boat and on foot/on bikes, and the scenery looks pretty impressive as well.

There is plenty to do if your active both on and of the water, its up to you. Remember and go and see the beavers. I am heading up on Thursday for a few days I'll look out for you on the water what is your 'driving' sib wise. I may not be out on the water as I have OB problems but if you se a yellow and black Ribcraft with a 150 mariner on the back give me a wave if you have VHF call sign Breawatch. I'll keep watch on here for you.
Have a nice week.
Cheers

We just have a little 2.85m SIB with a 9.8hp engine, hence my reluctance to venture out of the Loch into open water.
However we do have life jackets, flares, a sea anchor, oars and VHF on board so are not completely unprepared.
I don't have a licence for the VHF radio, I only bought it to call for help in an emergency, as last year we were in Fowey Cornwall and there was a chance we could end up in open water.
So I guess that means I shouldn't really use it to talk to other boaters?

But I will keep a look out for you. Our boat is grey with blue ends to the tubes. Here's the only picture I have of it, taken on Loch Linnhe with the smaller 6hp engine I had then.
