In preparation for his big night Santa performed a fly-past of the Mighty Clansman in Gott Bay at approximately 9.12 this morning. Somehow he seemed to know that vessel was providing a Christmas Eve sailing. With the sun rising about 9.00 the pier lights were on as the Clansman berthed. As the vessel pulled away from the pier and headed for Coll and Oban she sounded her horn wishing us all a “Happy Christmas”. I did wonder if I heard a “Ho! Ho!” in the distance.
