A few years back a couple of lads on here bigged up their trip to Rona where they had stayed in the Bothy. Naughtily, they tried to conceal it's whereabouts
from me. I was not amused, but it did pique my interest as it looked like my kind of place. I made a point of seeking it out and called in this year to recce it - in case I had ever Missus willk back that way.
I timed the visit for lunch - two birds and all that. Big Harbour is VERY sheltered and has a good number of visitor moorings. However there is a pontoon that is very RIB friendly. We tied up and I headed off to seek out Bill. Bill manages the island for it's Danish owners and I was hoping he'd show me the bothy - I also owed him a few quid for the pontoon
After a bit of looking I found Bill - he's a busy man. He's also a man who speaks his mind, takes sh1t from no-one and acts like he owns the place. After a slightly shaky start I decided I liked him. He reminded me of someone, hmmm, me maybe...
