2006 was a year of boat trips - the first was on new year's day on the chain-hauled ferry crossing from East to West Cowes on the Isle of Wight; the 45th and last was on 16 July on the Ardgour to Corran ferry, after having visited Ardnamurchan Point and the hills of Sunart. For Alan it was also a year of frustration, at having run out of holidays relatively early in the year. A week spent skiing in Austria in February, a week on Arran in March, two weeks on Mull in April, two weeks on Barra and the Western Isles in May, and then five days on Rum and north Skye in June, meant that he actually owed the company a day or three. From August onwards he had to be content with a host of Yeamans and countless rather uninspiring Deweys. Highlights of the year included a trip to Ailsa Craig, organised by Brent, the Arran and Mull trips to complete all Marilyns and Subs, and the Western Isles trip, with Brent again organising excellent trips to the outlying Hebridean islands.

All in all 68 days were spent on the hills, which was relatively low for us - the average for previous years is 85. It was perhaps a case of quality rather than quantity.
