Vittoria will be cruising the Caledonian Canal (Fort William to Inverness), Orkney, Fair Isle, the Shetlands and the Western Highlands and Islands of Scotland from her base in Craobh Marina in 2013. For details of Craobh Marina, including the holiday cottages, pub & restaurant and nearby attractions see www.craobhmarina.co.uk.
The following pictures were taken February, 2013.
Looking out across the marina to the glorious highland scenery.
Craobh Marina in February. More like the Caribbean!
Vittoria hauled out for 24 hours to have her bottom cleaned for the 2013 season.
Eider Ducks in the Marina. The two black and white ones are males. At this time of year otters also play on the shoreline early in the morning. In the summertime a seal can often be seen here and I have seen mackeral shoaling around the pontoons - and caught some!
