Mallaig is a beautiful fishing harbour. Had dinner with two friends Cam and Audrey that I had met in Tobermory. Off to Portree (Skye) tomorrow.

Warm, some sun and cloud. Cleaned the boat and repaired the Volvo engine panel. Two instrument plastic mounting bezels fell apart (bad design) – fixed with silicone. Met up with a friend (Eric) and two colleagues in his 880hp 25Kt motor boat. They are off to Harris and St Kilda tomorrow. Tomorrow I plan to sail to Mallaig at a leisurely speed of 6kts.

Walked past the famous brightly coloured harbour front houses to the excellent Cafe Fish for a superb bowl of spiced seafood stew served with prawn crackers and wild rice.
