Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Seaduction's got it, for sure. This short (~1/4 nm) ferry route operates year-round, except for a few holidays. It's rather a fun trip and you drive on/off a ramp like a military landing craft. The main attraction on the Isle of Bute IMHO is Rothesay castle (aside from the scenery, of course) and there is a serpentine street on the south side of Rothesay that reminds me of Lombard Street in San Francisco.

By the way, the Glencallum whiskey, distilled on Islay, claims it spiritual home on Glen Callum Bay on the southern tip of Bute.

Your turn, Seaduction.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The Colintraive Hotel looks like a great inn to spend a few days. They also have half a dozen moorings for boats and a shower-room. Now I gotta go there.
Since Zanshin found the Scottish Isles first, I am asking him to make the next post.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Seaduction, you might want to check the water temperature after you do a Google search for ocean bathers in this area. That said it is a really cool area (double entendre intended), but you need to be prepared for rain, wind, and cool weather interspersed with incredible days in the summertime.

Like swimming in the Beagle channel.

Apologize for the delay. Was hoping to have Z do a post. This photo was taken at a "museum" dedicated to two famous entrepreneurs.
