Mini Tour of Scotland – Day 9 Tarbert to Kilmore by Oban

As usual it rained in the morning. However it cleared up after awhile and looked like it’s going to be a great day of riding. That does not mean it will not rain. And it did. The rain and sun tango the whole day long each trying to show who’s boss. Me, crazing putting on and off the rain jacket.

The route started with a nice dedicated cycling lane via the canal and then back to country roads with fast cars and lorries.

I must have passed by at least 5 or 6 bodies of water. I am not sure if they are sea lochs or fresh water lochs. They all look the same to me. Spectacular and beautiful no matter.

Finally I arrived at Kilmore but google maps does not show Roy’s location so I had to call him to get directions.

Kilmore is a beautiful and scenic enclave housing estate next to a hill. Roys house was top of the hill. Was lost but decided to ask a couple of ladies if they knew Roy. They did and gave me directions to his house.

Roy and Liz welcomed me warmly, fed me and gave me nice comfy room to stay. Had a good chat with them and decided with Roy that I should stay on tomorrow so that he can show me around Oban and also the community projects there. Wow what a fantastic opportunity. I thank you Roy and Liz for that.

God Morning and it looks like a superb day
A cup of tea and snack
Suns up and the colours are vibrant and everything looks already more pleasant

A nice comfy rest guaranteed Thanks Roy.
