For Bob Hove: Read it again. We said nothing nor do we feel anything at all derogatory about the crew or the ship – each of which we support and admire (although we except the MoD’s procurement processes from our admiration and support).

This article is about the political machinations that, unless we are very lucky, will lead us into an unnecessary and manufactured war with Iran.

  • Inveraray & District Local History Society talk focuses on ‘The Argylls’
    My apologies – names absolutely matter as they are precise identifiers. This was my fault. The text has been corrected.

  • John MacGregor
    The most fitting tribute to John MacGregor – and the legacy he would most have wanted – would be to see the pontoons in Oban Bay, the CHORD project proposal he and his colleagues – supported and funded by the Oban business community – have worked hard on and campaigned hard for over many years now.
  • The view from Lochinvar: party of the century from the Commonwealth Flotilla
    We dealt with this issue when the RYA initially made their rather ill-judged public complaint.
    There were two competing versions of what happened and no third party can know which was the closest to objective truth.
    The Waverley’s owners’ version was that her less than precise steering was judged by the harbour master to be a risk to other boats in the flotilla, should any unforeseen incident on the water occur.
    As we understand it, CalMac would have had their boat in the flotilla anyway; and Cruiser’s presence was an independent commercial enterprise by Clyde Marine.
    The RYA chartered Clyde Clipper from Clyde Marine for their own guests on the flotilla, amongst whom was Mike Cantlay Chair of VisitScotland.
    Since the RYA’s list of those it deemed Waverley to have let down included its own guests; and since it complained that the paddler’s owners had chosen ‘instead to pursue a corporate charter on the same day’ – it looks as if the RYA had expected to put its own guests on the Waverley at no charge – which seems a bit cheeky.

    You’re absolutely right. Apologies for the error – and we’ll correct the text now.

    Thank you – and I wasn’t looking for this.

  4. Hi Chaps re dispatch of HMS Daring to the Iranian Gulf…unless I mis-read it, found your report on this subject highly offensive and an insult to the brave women and men who are prepared to risk life and limb on our behalf.

    Daring was built in Scotland and is based in my home town Portsmouth.

    Just thought I had to say something about this

    Bob, Hove

  5. I just wanted to express my sadness at hearing that Margaret Annfield, Co-ordinator of the North Argyll Car Scheme had passed away.

    This lady helped make my life as a long distance carer much easier and my mum would not have been able to attend hospital and doctor’s appointments without this invaluable service. Sadly residents living in rural parts of Argyll often find themselves severely disadvantaged because of their location. The North Argyll Car Scheme has helped to go some way to remedy this.

    My mum and I will always be grateful to Margaret for setting up this invaluable service – as we are to the many selfless volunteers who continue to keep it running today.

  6. Your servers need looking at.

    Response times are becoming very slow from any of the fibre optic connections I use in West London.
