Our most enjoyable ten days ever on Scotland's West Coast. We saw countless Gannets, Fulmars, Puffins and large numbers of Dolphins. Manx Shearwaters, Guillemots and Razorbills joined in as did Skuas, Shags and Cormorants. And on our return past Ardnamurchan several Minke whales came to visit. Chris, the skipper, skilfully adjusted our itinerary to make the best of some changeable weather so we managed to reach both the Shiant islands and St Kilda as well as interesting anchorages on the way. Lynsey's keen eye kept us alert to every sighting, Greg spoiled us with imaginative dishes and Bea looked after us with a never-ending supply of Prosecco and cake. Utterly delightful.
