That's enough evidence, and my next holiday decided then. Portree here I come!

Will have to get to the west coast then! I have a week off in september where I was hoping to get away with the boat and the Mrs - she will be fairly well pregnant by then, but i didnt see anything in the information sheet at her 12 week scan about not Ribbing!

Biffers boat is the most interesting Coastline I've seen for a while...

(Well, that's what it says it is on the for sale ads...)

Durlston Head, Dancing Ledge, Whinspit, Kimmeridge, Warbarrow Bay, Man of War Bay, Lulworth, Durdle Door, Chapmans Pool etc must be one of the finest few miles of coast line to cruise along in the UK.

I am lucky enough to do most of my cruising in west Cork out of Crookhaven lots of interesting places to call to all within easy reach ..

But recently I spent a weekend based in Gighia and cruised north on day one calling in to see Corrvreckan,Easdale Craighouse, on day 2 we called to Port Askaig and Port Ellen then back to Cushendall.. definitely nice area.. But then again so is west Cork / Kerry

Did exactly the same on Saturday, and previous Saturday, beautiful, but I suspect that some Welsh and Scottish coasts would be even more dramatic.
