07/01/2011, Inverie to Loch Scavaig; 24nm travelled
Hi all, well as Doctor John would say, what a night! Party at the Old Forge in Inverie, we splashed out on a meal out, with local venison, and seafood, it was fabulous! Then we nursed a few beers until the band, led by Theo Bard (google him), tuned up, and got the place grooving. The pub was jam packed and a lot of the locals appeared with fiddles, bodhrans, a beat box! and whistles and proceeded to sit in with the band. A proper jam session which was great. Having had a few more beers, we retired to Mark's cockpit on Little Orca via Emerald for a bottle of Speyside malt (Glen Moray) from the whisky locker. This was polished off with great aplomb, though perhpas that was the reason that the crew of Emerald were rather tardy on leaving next morning.

06/30/2011, Arisaig to Inverie, Loch Nevis: 16nm travelled
It was a choice between an early start or a late start for leaving Arisaig to allow for enough water in the entrance channel. Given we'd had 3 pints of homemade cider each the night before the late start was preferrable - although when we did wake there was no hangover :-)
