Depaends Alan its a fair stint Loch Linne down to Corry but you'll know youve done it. I am just belt and braces just in case he thought he could pick some up as puffin Divers would be the only place enroute

Aye, iirc from Linnhe Marina to Crinan is circa 26nm, that's not the tourist route though, that's direct, give a few more for 'investigating'.

It would be cheaper to fill up with 12yo single malt from the distillery in the town centre

A visit to the sea food restaurant Ee-usk right in the centre of Oban is recommended. Had a really good meal there on my last visit
Oban Seafood Restaurant, Lobster, Crab, Langoustine, Mussels, Argyll Scotland - Ee-Usk

The food is decent,but the service and attitude is something else!...after the way they treated one of our party last year,WE won't be going there again!
Do yourself a favour and Try the 'Sea Food Temple' (just along the Front) next time....you will have a pleasant surprise!
They have their own Boat...and WE can ALL avouch for the Quality of their produce!...and the owner isn't a Bad Guy either!
Although you do have to book!
Like Mick said the whole area is Best Cruising in Europe! A drop of sun and you won't want to come home!

Maximus - good to know - thanks, will def try that place on next visit.
It was the middle of winter when i was last up there (January past) , hence only about 6 other people in EeUsk which may have helped - but food was spot on.
