Scotland 2012

The summer of 2012, we started from Port Bannatyne, Isle of Bute in Firth of Clyde, and ended this year's cruise in Barcaldine Marine, Loch Creran on the west coast. With the broad brush, we went through the Kyles og Argyll, through the Crinan Canal, up to Oban, where Liv came on board . Went clockwise around Isle of Mull, around Ardnamurchan Point to the peninsula of Sleat on the Isle of Skye (visitng all the small isles on the way) and back to Oban.
After that we enjoyed The Highland games, a wonderful meal in the White House, in Loch Aline and some really nice sailing days with Jennie B and her Crew.
Finally Stephen came on board for some really exiting sailing through the infamous Corrywreckan, to the Isle of Oronsay, Isle of Jura and back to Ardfern.
