Where's your number one cruising ground...?

Got a new 6M rib on the way and I'm looking for suggestions on where to use it...

What's your hidden gem? Where's that place you know and love that has an easy launch, great cruising grounds, that cracking pub nearby or perfect beach for the family?

List em up for all to enjoy - ideally with launching point and suggested stops or end points?

Ideally launches that have concrete slips for my 5 series rather than muddy beaches!

Cheers

Jim

you can't have an ideal boating place without mentioning a few places up here.

oban is brill (easdale rib rendezvous and corryvreckan).
loch lomond is a must see when you are up here, you pass it on way to Oban!
kyles of bute, epic scenery.
portavadie
tarbet

launching isn't an issue, plenty of slips around the place depending on where you are. everywhere above you can stop and go ashore for food etc.

some local vids i've taken through the years.
