Tobermory, Staffa Coll Tobermory

Well it's probably a jaunt in the park for you helmet wearing nutters but my good lady and I have just left the freeloaders in Tobermory and gone round the top of Mull . I got my little 4.8 straight into the cave on Staffa , fantastic it was to . Got a slot in between the tourists trips so had it to ourselves .

Then headed ver to Coll for haddock and chips .

Back to Mull now having a pint in Tobermory grinning like a pair of Cheshire cats , although they need to do something with the floor in here it's swaying all over the shop .

Question is how long will it be before I am no longer a newbie

Well done the pair of you, we chickened out of going into the cave, a tad too lumpy for my liking. You're heading for Cliqueville as we speak

Yes good feeling it was a bit choppy between staffa and Coll so had to slow down (13knots) the rest was pretty steady

We had pretty crap weather on jura and a lot better here on Tobermory but for me jura still has the edge . It's great when your debating which is the best of the two places you love .

Remember don't spread the word we don't want hordes up here. We like the fact that there's not hundreds of boats all buzzing around that's why it's so peaceful and you can enjoy the seascape in all it's glory and splendour
