      Very last section was a race to get to the last ferry. Based on my experience so far there was only one outcome. As I got to the village I could see the ferry halfway across the water on its last journey to Iona. Thankfully the weather is good and I found a great spot at the nearest campsite. The views are stunning. Tomorrow there is an 8.20 Ferry and all being well I hope to be on it..

      I left back packers plus hostel early to get the 7.20 ferry only to find it had been cancelled. The next one was over an hour so I headed back to the hostel to get some breakfast. So 8.40 I eventually get the ferry to craignure. The ride starts well. Just outside Craignure I found a mussel farm shop only to discover it is closed. Further into the ride the road starts to climb. My navigation app gives suggested route along a track parallel to the main road. By this point I was getting tired of stopping everytime a car or coach comes along (the road is single track and very busy). At first the track seemed fine and great for a mountain bike even with a heavy load like mine. Feeling very optimistic I even stopped for 5 minutes to dip my toes in a stream as i thought they deserved it. Sadly the track became increasingly overgrown and difficult to ride to the point where it almost disappeared. This continued for 2 miles with no way of rejoining the road.

      This route uses a wonderfully quiet road following Loch Awe. It is however quite hilly. There are some hidden gems along the way. To my delight I discovered a tiny curry house called black rock. I purchased a frozen curry and microwaveable Tilda rice which I cooked at the hostel in Oban. Best curry EVER!
