This time of year the grey seals take over the pier so we can't land sometimes:

Oh if only you had kept an eye on me for about 20 mins after we last bumped into each other, you could have had all the ammo you wanted...

Scottish SIBbing destinations

I would be interested in a trip as I've always wanted to visit the places I read about on here but do not have the experience / know how to safely do so!!

Here's some pics from my 72 mile trip around Loch Lomond.
Quality day out.
For those that want to build their confidence up I recommend going here on a nice calm day.

Plenty of help at hand should you need it as well.

Scottish SIBbing destinations

I'm quite new to sibbing, bought a honwave 3 years ago and it's the best thing I ever did. The best trips I've had are round iona and out to Staffa/treshnish isles, the Torran rocks, eigg and muck, round the ardnamurchan peninsula and down to Tobermory. My favourite trip was from Crinnan through the corryvwreckan and then down the west coast of jura to a spot called corpach bay - gorgeous. Camped there a couple of nights then out round colonsay and back. Can't wait until next year when I can do it all again and also explore some new places.

Thanks. I got a bit of a row from someone in a yacht once - he said I was being 'a bit adventurous'. I got in touch with the coastguard after that as I wasn't sure - they gave me some advice but pretty much said what I was doing was okay,
