Good stuff Tony. You don't mention the hotels in either Port Askaig or Craighouse on the food list - are they closed or not doing food anymore. I have fond memories of a top venison burger in the hotel in Craighouse...

Greetings from across the pond oh wise one!!

According to my local knowledge they are both open for business. I did say in your 'feeder' thread that the Jura Hotel might be an option for you re the Friday night 'craic'
Cheers for now

I think that's your best post ever Jambo.

However, I fear that Muz doesn't "do" public appearances...

Elo - i'm a newbie to the ERR. Planning to launch at Puffin Divers on the Friday morning and get round to Easdale. Got a 8.5m RIB - what's the situation about mooring - does everyone just raft up in the small harbour, or use moorings or ? Just wondering what the score is.

Can't wait for the event, both on water and off
