No trip to Argyll is complete without a drive around Inverawe. A beautiful place, with woodland left to nature to do its thing in the middle of the estate. This time, the trees were particularly gorgeous in the sunlight. Of course, what really matters is that Old Friend, the first and most characterful of the […]
I spent Saturday travelling, mostly driving, to old stamping ground in Argyll. There were roadworks holding up proceedings at Cruachan visitor centre, so I stopped to take the obvious photo of the Pass of Brander from the carpark. The other favourite view is from the Connel Bridge looking toward Ben Cruachan; this time, the mountain […]
