After Neptune’s Staircase, and a night at the Premier Inn, the group gathered on the barge at Banavie to be shown around by the crew: Dave, Chris, Lucy and James. Ros Crana is equipped with a lounge, a dining room, a galley and small but comfortable cabins. It also carries bikes, a sailing boat and canoes for non-rowing days. For a first expedition, Alan, Catherine, Amanda, John and Veronica rowed to Gairlochy whilst the rest of us walked the six miles. Mixed weather again! Bluejacket was moored opposite Ros Crana for the night. The barge served as a great safety vessel throughout the expedition. Gairlochy was a good base to set off across Loch Lochy on the following morning, Sunday 30th, as you can see in the bottom picture.
