The day started off wet and very dark.
As we went over the Ballachulish Bridge some light appeared in the sky over the Pap of Glencoe. (And that lamp-post really was leaning at that angle!) In the distance you can see the Pap of Glencoe, a mountain on the Northern side of Glencoe.
We have often passed Castle Stalker on but I have never stopped there before. This time we called in at the visitor centre for a coffee. It is believed that Castle Stalker, much in its present form, was built by the then Lord of Lorn, Sir John Stewart, in about 1388. King James IV of Scotland enjoyed staying there and hunting in the area.
A patch of blue sky gradually appeared as we crossed over Loch Creran – “Enough blue to make a sailor a pair of trousers”, as my grandmother would say.
But the skies darkened again as we went over the Connel Bridge and big drops of rain landed on the car windows.
We arrived at the Argyll in Inveraray in late afternoon. We like this hotel with its pleasant service, excellent food and comfortable beds and have been back a few times now.
We had a wander around the town for a while…
…and then dressed for dinner.
And dinner was as good as always.
