Really envious of all these posts recently showing amazing boating area's!

For the next few months I have loads on so only have a odd day to get the RIB out, but they are all a little far away for a day trip!

That's a belter of a picture.

We are blessed with some of the most picturesque cruising in the country.

When the weather is good, there is nowhere finer than the UK. When it's bad, just gwear the right clothing and get out there.

Very jealous.

Amazing Skye

I can see my house!

All that ground on the right of Loch Eil is my place.

Nice Did you go up via the tourist donkey track or the NE arÍte? We looked at it last week as we cruised by.
For the record, Fort William isn't very welcoming for visiting boats, couldn't find anywhere to tie up or land. We ended up across at the TINY pontoon at the bottom of Neptunes staircase, had a coffee & went home. Stunning scenery on the way up/down though.
