The 10 helicopters consisted of 2 R22’s, 7 R44’s and 1 R66.

Helicopters from Heli Club de L’ain landed at Loch Melfort Hotel.

They were on their annual trip they take as a group and this year decided on a round trip of Scotland, visiting all of Scotland’s gems. They visited the Jura Hotel for lunch then the distillery one day and headed on to Stornoway after leaving us. Whilst staying at Loch Melfort, they enjoyed spectacular seafood including Loch Melfort caught langoustines and beautiful scenery.

One morning we were also visited by the Hebridean Princess passenger ferry, making for some great pictures.
