I am up for a 'bash' next time you make it over to the 'right' side of the water!! I am sure there are one or two others from this part and the clyde that I am sure would want to join.
Should maybe start a thread for organising as the good weather will soon be here!!

Jambo,

I have two option at the moment, I will be seeing my co-conspirators tomorrow night for some light refreshments and will therefore try to make a decisions between the two at that point.

My two options are essentially circumnavigating Bute or Jura with other bits and pieces tagged on to add interest.

Neil

being born on Bute and doing almost all my ribbing on Loch Sween or Sound of Jura I commend both choices as having great potential. What ever your final choice have a great time and be safe,
Cheers
Billy

Mallaig and points west is very good if the weather is reasonable.
We have had two trips bumming around the small isles this year and there is a great campsite of Rum right on the water edge, 1.50 per night with toilets and hot showers.
Alternatively mallaig and go round the corner into Loch Nevis, it doesn't get much more islated than this and is pretty sheltered once inside the loch, plus there is a pub and agood restaurant right on the water.
We have a few good trips over the years in there as well, pic is of the loch from the beach.

OK - I'm currently leaning towards a trip round Jura (or if the weather's shit hiding in Loch Sween). In my research I found this:

Anyone on here? It looks like they had a LOT of kit with them, although they were there for a week so I guess they'll need much more beer than me!

Current challenge is finding a weekend when all three of us are permitted a weekend off work and kids!

That's an oddly moving clip. Reminds me of so many trips past, waking to a new day in the middle of nowhere. Don't know where you should go, but I know that if you don't cut the time out of your schedule with a ruthless blade, you'll regret it for ever.

Go.
