Log No 121. Wed 4th Sep 2013 - Port Ban, nr Kilberry to Tarbert, 16 miles (1883 miles walked)
Whatever happened to the forecast bad weather? It was a bit on the windy side but I'll happily have more like this, a pity the scenery was nothing to get excited about.
Looking to the Mull of Kintyre
After passing through Kilberry the road cut inland a bit before getting alongside West Loch Tarbert.
The road by West Loch Tarbert
The road was mainly through trees and was very quiet but with the sunshine it was actually very pleasant walking.
I did meet a real live walker, he was staying in Tarbert and was going to Kilberry to look at some recumbent stones then getting the bus back. I don't know what time his bus was, there is only one a day, but I met him at 12.00 and it had taken me 4 hours from Kilberry.
Coming round the head of the loch I should have turned right on the main road but went left into Tarbert.
There was no convenient campsite today so I was going to some shopping then get a bus on to what would be Thursdays campsite, I also wanted to pick up bus timetables to see how feasible it would be to have a base camp.
It was just a short day of 16 miles but I am now on the Mull of Kintyre.
