We're in Oban as we speak, weather is "interesting". There is a big concert on Saturday & they are predicting chaos on the roads. We're going to try & get away early am.

I know, I've just had a problem with accomodation. I'm up about 6 times a year and have never really had a problem but this "event" has rammed everything.

Excuse me igronance, why is it so popular ?

Just got back after a 10:30 drive. Should have only taken 6 hours. Thanks to a bust fan belt. Lucky the boat battery came off easy.

Glad to be back as I'm listening to the wind and rain against the window. 😢😊

Perroboy is right cologin chalets ( the barn) just out of Oban on the way down to seil. It's only about 4 miles out.
And the launch was puffin, I was up 3 weeks ago and left the boat there rather than dragging it back down to teesside.
Really enjoyed it.
