Three Men in a Boat go Sailing at Loch Melfort
The start of the annual West Highland Yachting Week was made all the more exciting yesterday with the addition of a yacht being sailed by the men from BBC’s Three Men in a Boat fame. Griff Rhys Jones, Dara O’Briain and Rory McGrath are racing the Croabh Haven to Oban leg of the famous race for their new TV series due to be aired over the Christmas period.
As the boats lined up to start the race at 2pm a film crew circled over head in a helicopter – no doubt filming some stunning aerial shots.
Meantime, the Arduaine Garden Summer Festival was underway in the NTS Arduaine Garden next door to Loch Melfort Hotel, with local artists, music and children’s activities for all to enjoy and to raise money and awareness for keeping this precious NTS Garden open long term.
