A Gigantic Whinge on the Celtic Fringe

An Amazon Kindle book, written by Martin Edge (of this parish).

It's the story of his 2011 cruise in 'Zophiel' (a 27ft Vancouver), often single-handed, from Port Edgar (under the Forth Bridge near Edinburgh), round Ireland "the wrong way" and them up the west coast of Wales to the west coast of Scotland, before returning home via the Caledonian Canal.

I found it both entertaining and educational - especially when he mentions any ports and havens on the north and west coasts of Ireland. Sometimes placenames I vaguely knew, but really had no idea where they were. So plenty of hours trying to find his destinations and follow his route.
