Log No 120. Tue 3rd Sep 2013 - Point of Knap to Port Ban near Kilberry, 15 miles (1867 miles walked)
It's a good thing I stopped where I did, another 100m and I would have been over the bridge with the built-in cattle grid and having to camp with the cows.
Looking to Loch Caolisport
The weather was like yesterday and it was light rain going along the track, I don't know how I managed it but I was away by 07.40.
Coming down to Ellary I met a man out with his dog, he happened to be from York and he said the forecast for today and the next 2 days was "not too bad", "bad" and "good on Thursaday".
Once I was down at Loch Caolisport it was to be road walking again all day.
Looking back across the loch to Ellary
The rain began to ease after 10.00 and I took my first break on the sandy shore looking back over the loch.
As the weather finally cleared I felt it looked settled enough to take my waterproofs off, t-shirt & shorts for the first time since Saturday.
Blue sky and the sea
On my rest day on Sunday I had washed my t-shirt & pants and this was the first opportunity I had to try to get them dried on the back of my rucsac.
These roads have been fairly quiet and have seen hardly any people about so it was a pleasant surprise to see Miss White out in her garden with her helpers.
I was starting to find plenty of brambles ready now so eating enough fruit is not going to be a problem.
It was just after 15.00 when I got to the campsite at Port Ban and the site fee was waived as I was walking for charity.
Looking to Kilberry Head
I don't think I have camped as close to the shore as I am doing today, I hope it doesn't blow up a storm tonight.
Today's 15 miles were easy and it is all road walking again tomorrow.
