This morning I collected guests from Argyll Hotel in Glasgow and then headed north-west visiting the following sites:

  • Loch Lomond where we stopped to photograph a snow-capped Ben Lomond.
  • Ret and be Thankful scenic pass.
  • Inveraray Castle and town on Loch Fyne.
  • Oban
  • The prehistoric linear cemetery and stone circle site at Kilmartin Glen. First we visited the museum and visitor centre.
  • Carved 14th/15th century medieval grave-markers at Kilmartin Church burial ground.
  • Prehistoric rock art at Achnabreck
  • Dunadd fort at foot of Kilmartin Glen
  • Oban,where we are staying tonight.

Overall, a good day aided by reasonably dry weather.

In the evening, guest John gave a demonstration of bagpipe playing at a local pub in Oban.
