fair play to ye for going out, can see it is quite lumpy when you get out the loch in your pics, great rib weather!
the lochs are magic for pottering about, i'm going to get a sib purely for doing that. i went to see a bombard aerotec a month or so ago but decided against it for something a bit bigger (i.e honwave, seapro hd etc).
the only downside with gareloch/loch long are the polis sniffing about. if they are bored they may give you a shout to break their day up. happened to me twice up loch long in recent years, siren on and came full chat after me.
interestingly i was never ever pulled in my cabin cruiser and i was no where near the protected area on the charts, twice in the rib now..........ummmm.
they are always polite of course, just wanting to see i am not greenpeace with a rib i guess. to be fair i probably goto carrick castle 10x a season so once now and then is probably a good ratio.
loch goil is brill, well worth the trip if you are about, it is always calm up there. usually see a couple of eagles up on the hills as you enter loch goil...keep your eyes open.
