TAYVALLICH
I am at Tayvallich notice spelling just now it's my home port. No great numbers of scallops in the Loch you be better launching at Carsaig side straight into S of J. You'll get crabs and lobsters in the Loch. If you want more info pm me.

Hi listen you'll be okay keep to shore. But take your point the Loch safer and more wee bits to explore. Sorry not up next weekend. Mackerel sparingly about just be patient. Have you been before?

If in Tavill.. ,Toyvill.., Tayvoll... Jambo country, be sure to go in the pub on the hill, preferably in a mob & ask the landlord for food, drinks, seats outside etc. Any more than 3 people/hour & he's fecked.
