You are a lucky man, my mrs would have booked some where bloody miles from the water and pubs. I dream of getting a pontoon within a mile. Still love her though.

Great location Beerbelly ! I hope you have a great time and get some decent (not hailstones/torrential rain) weather when you're up there !

Hopefully the restrictions will only apply in the vicinity of the pontoons. I'm sure you'll find a quiet corner up there.

You couldn't make it up !! Red hot July, fantastic September and a bloody tail end of a tropical storm in August..

I once had two weeks on Mull in June about 30 years ago and it was better than the Greek islands. Waterskied all the way from Fionnphort to Fingles cave on a millpond of a sea passing dolphins !

One year it'll happen again.

The reason they say it's not suitable for jet skis and waterskiing is that it's located in the middle of the Cuan Sound one of the many channel with big tidal races combined with rocky shores and busy narrow channel with ferry traffic.
