After what I have read on here I think I will be taking my rib up next year even though it's a long way from Cornwall.

Not as far as lake Garda mate

Iona

Managed Iona today, but too rough to continue to Staffa, kids not so keen.

Two hours each way, just got back before heavens opened, was very blustery but well worth it.

Getting to Iona but not Staffa is better than not getting to either . Well done sounds like a good effort

Me and the brother in law had to watch the boats at the slip as the tide was going out quick. Girlies and kids went off though.

Trip back reminded me of the rib cruise back in March April along the straits to Conwy and back, I remember your rib doing really well

We used a couple of moorings and borrowed a yachties tender to get to the beach. The ferry from mull was using the wall where you are moored up in the pics.

As for the Straits...Thanks Yeh it was a bit choppy coming back from Conwy to puffin Island for sure ,but Imogen has been out in a lot worse than that I'm not sure if its my rib that is capable or that I'm just stupid Don't answer that if you think it's the latter
