    Sounds like a grand tour! Don't rush through Tarbert and add Tayvallich to your list. There is a waiting list for the moorings there, but they do come up.

    Tayvallich is bonny... but a bit of a drag up Loch Sween!

    Wildlife if carp - who needs whales, eagles & dolphins (note get the hebridean whale and dolphin trust app for recent sightings).

    Anchorages are too quiet - rarely get party boats adding to the ambience

    You never get to raft up to other boats to get ashore

    You never have to queue to get to the showers

    The water is often too clear and you get vertigo looking down at the starfish.

    The seafood is terrible.

    And don't get me started on the clear skies at night!
    You are thinking to do this as a relief from Brexit? Perhaps you might read up the SNP's plans before committing yourselves
