    Default Summer cruise around west coast of Scotland

    Following on from our trip last year from Ipswich to Ardrossan, we are continuing our cruise around Britain this summer in our boat Ruby Tuesday, focusing on the west coast of Scotland.

    We have the whole summer, so we have no real set timetable or deadlines, and are just going where the whim and weather takes us.

    For those interested, we are keeping a blog of our trip, musings and ramblings at:

    Summer's been cancelled this year. Sorry to disappoint.

    You are leaving it a bit late. May and June are the best months on the west coast, says ex Fort William resident.

    We've been going since the first week in May already! We have had some excellent weather, but also some miserable, particularly in the last couple of weeks. Fingers crossed for July, August and September.

    Hmmm. We couldn’t get to our boat in Kerrera due to a storm, had to stay in Lochboisdale for five days due to a storm and then had to stay in Malling for a week due to the next one (nice place to visit but a week!!!) ALL in the same August.
    That being said, last year was glorious so good luck.
