Day 47 Tarbert to Kilmelford

Monday August 9th 60 miles. 4 hours 31 minutes.

Weather: Cool & rainy to start - warm & sunny later.

Accommodation: Glenmore Country House (B&B)

Second time I've left Tarbert and the weather has been miserable. First 30 miles spent on exposed undulating but very quiet 'B' road (single track much of the time). Back on to flat terrain for next 10 miles or so to Kilmartin - for a few miles road ran along the busy but beautiful Crinan Canal (a short cut for boats not wanting to sail round the Mull of Kintyre). Last section to Kilmelford hilly but nevertheless enjoyable as sun had come out and views of Loch Craignish and Melfort were stunning. Accommodation was a lovely country house in a fantastic location overlooking Loch Melfort.
