It is at times like these that I appreciate the wonders of technology. Here I sit in my log cabin in the Rocky Mountains of Canada reading a wonderful account of what life was like for my gggrandfather, told by a person sitting at a keyboard in a civilized part of England.

No, Malcolm, you are not getting carried away. Who better than a sailor to put meat on the bones of a fisherman in 1850 Scotland. When I see pictures of the Loch Fyne area, I can well imagine the attraction. I have a standing date for lunch at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar at Cairndow if I ever get my act together and plan my trip.
I came across this old thread, while searching for something else, and decided to post an update. It took me a while, but I'm happy to report that I did get that lunch date at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar at Cairndow on very hot, sunny day and it did not disappoint.
