Well, now we are enjoying a wonderful spell of balmy, sunny days and clear, starry nights – making up for our disappointing summer. I have only a few tours left for this season, with a few months ahead, planning and reading in preparation for next year.
I had a lovely road trip yesterday, crossing part of the Trossachs via the ascents and descents of the Duke Pass and on to Loch Lomond before skirting round Glasgow and heading south-west through Ayrshire to an unusual destination in the shape of the Corsewall Lighthouse, perched on the edge of the Galloway coast, beyond Stranraer, looking towards Ireland.
On my return home to Argyll, the view below greeted me as the sun began to sink across Loch Etive. Not a bad spot to be able to call home……!
