This is great... OK, good folks of Bute. If you have a field where you could accommodate motor homes or caravans post it here for the moment. If you have a spare room or a garden where you don't mind someone pitching up for a couple of weeks do likewise.

We're working on a page to get all this info out there in a more organised format soon as we tie up the loose ends with the local tourism people so expect it any day. In the meantime, don't forget that Bute is a very easy commute from Glasgow so we'll be asking the folks at Cal-Mac Ferries to help out and you could always soak up the wonderful accommodation possibilities a little north near Dunoon and its surrounding area then pop over on the Rhubodach to Colintraive ferry across the Kyles.

Just checked, there is still a number of accommodations available on booking.com and other popular tourist websites.

Bren gun carriers are very comfortable to sleep in, and warm if you have had the engine running !

But alas I won’t be taking the lil tank as we will have more than enough military hardware present for me to get my fix :D

I could take the Enterprise as Jordan has mentioned, again a comfy boat to kip in, but I don’t see the point in bringing it as we will be busy and it will just get in the way
Clarence come out ov zat tank at vonz !

Hi Tom,

We've all enjoyed working with you in the past - would be great to have you along on the next adventure. Give us a call.

It's early days but we've added a page about Loch Fad/Bute to the website...
