2009 - North West Scotland  

Loch Tarbert, early June 2009

Barrie looking happy?       Maybe because the rain has stopped!

We made the most of it , and over the two months visited Col, anchored of Muck in the Small islands, and had a lovely visit to the Knoydart Peninsula, picking up a mooring close to Inverie and enjoyed a meal of hand dived scallops at the “Old Forge”. Highly recommended. Many nights were also spent tied up to a mooring buoy off Tobermory.

Rounding Ardnamurchan Point


Mike, Nicola and Harry

We were joined by our friends Mike, Harry and Nicola, and also by friends Jane, Jimmy and Elizabeth, who got off to a bad start when the wind got up to over 30 knots on their first night aboard. They became our first mutineers, opting for the Youth Hostel in Tobermory.

Rainbow over Loch Sunart

Our poor, long suffering border collie, Bob. He is the best dog ever, but no matter how hard we tried he was never happy on the boat. The caption for this photograph should read “are we near land yet?”

Bob is now happily living with Anthea in Pembrokeshire.

On Passage to Islay - sunshine at last!

Islay Jazz Festival

Yarona in the ice - Glasson Basin Marina winter 2009 -2010

After having a great time at the Islay Jazz Festival we visited Glenarm and Bangor in Northern Island, then across to the new marina at Peel on the Isle of Man and finally home to Glasson Dock, Where Yarona spent the winter. Kath went back to work as a locum to pay for all the improvements and updates to Yarona that were to keep Barrie occupied over the next six months.
