Coasting Round Britain

30th March 2013 to 12th July 2014
Crinan to Kilberry (22)
1867 out of 5630 miles completed

Log No 120. Tue 3rd Sep 2013 - Point of Knap to Port Ban near Kilberry, 15 miles (1867 miles walked)

Looking to Loch Caolisport
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.

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".

Looking back across the loch to Ellary
Once I was down at Loch Caolisport it was to be road walking again all day.

The rain began to ease after 10.00 and I took my first break on the sandy shore looking back over the loch.

Blue sky and the sea
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.

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.

Snow White
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.

Looking to Kilberry Head
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.

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.
