If you want to keep a secret on here, two top tips:

1. Don't pique my interest with photos of Heaven on Earth
2. Don't post a photo of the Nautical Chart on the bothy wall

Great photos smudge! Stayed in the same Bothy a few years ago for a 40th Birthday party. It was actually Creachan, a member on here's 40th Birthday! (He bought Milans Gemini Waverider 730) One of the bonniest little anchorages on the west coast. We spent the night there, 3 x ribs & 2 x hard boats & then went over to Portree on Skye for lunch the following day, before returning to our home island of Lewis/Stornoway. Included a few snaps of our trip, no decking outside the bothy when we were there, looks a nice addition. & of course a pic of the main man, the living legend that is Bill Cowie! What an absolute star who went out of his way to make us feel welcome! Can't recommend the place highly enough

Hi Robbie - that's for the post. Bill is a great guy just live it over there. Might be heading back Sept. just before I tuck the boat up for the season!
Some great looking ribs in the pontoon - which makes, models and engines not quite a rib spotter yet!
Is your the blue one with a 250?

Is your the blue one with a 250?

Orange Humber Destroyer 6.5 with Mariner 150 Optimax (Willies boat which he's now sold & bought a sweet Delta 7.5x with a Yamaha F225)

Blue & Yellow Tornado 7.5 with Yamaha F250 (My own boat, in the picture it has the original 300 Yamaha hpdi fitted, by I recently re-powered with a fourstroke 250 Yam)

White Gemini 7.5 with Evinrude E-tec 225 (Martins boat, or Creachan on rib.net)

White Raider 17 with Evinrude Ficht 90 (Bunters boat)

& the Lochin 333 Cruiser belongs to my Dad, Gordon


The Entrance to Acarsaid Mhor is a fairly complicated approach if I remember?In fact its very hard to spot from the sea! Did you go to Church Cave when you were there?
