Rockall the middle of no where

Last night I had a drink for the first time since Arran a few weeks ago, I was with a great pal Lyle Brotherton and Al Swadel. We had a few drams and as always the tales started. We were speaking about Islands and some adventures and I told them the tale about our “Mission to Rockall” in July 1982.  I have written about it before but when I look back it gets better and better as a unique experience.
