FAIRMONT TO SKYE
Lifted Perth Airport to collect Mr Fink and his party from the Fairmont Hotel ( St Andrews ). The weather forecast wasn’t favourable, winds around 25kts at St Andrews and the forecast for Skye was gusts of 35kts.
We decided to carry on with the flight and hopefully arrive at Oban and make another decision on the weather. Flying the low level route over Loch Lomond and following the Crinin Canal, we manage to fly up the west coast. Effected by rain showers we managed to get Mr Fink to Oban.
It was unfortunate that the weather had deteriorated for the rest of the flight. Mr Fink was transferred by road for the rest of his journey to the Kinloch Lodge on Skye.
