Springtime in Scotland

We were in Oban, the hub of the highlands and we were in Oban Marina, which was on the island of Kerrera, so to go anywhere you had to travel by water taxi. Once I had had a much needed shower, it...

Salty what?

After a much needed day in bed, it was time to move on. We planned to sail to Ardfern as it was reported to have a well stocked chandler and we were in desperate need of a chart of the area. As...

Raising money for the RNLI

That assistance came in the shape of a RNLI boat from Portpatrick, so we have decided to raise money for the RNLI through our Damsels in distress page on just giving, that way you know that any money goes straight to them. We have set ourselves a target of £500 and we would like to honour our pledge, so if you like our videos then please give a little to those who rescue people in the seas around the UK.
