A winter detour to Ardgour.

We had a day off yesterday. It was still dark when Farmer did the feeding so we could get away in time for the 10.25 Fishnish Lochaline ferry. We had time once we got to the other side to take our favourite detour – the wild goat route. Roughly half way between Lochaline and Strontian we turned right down towards Kingairloch.

Pebble beach and bothy.

We only went as far as Ardgour. And we were back in Lochaline in time for the 4pm ferry having had a very enjoyable day out.

If you are coming to Mull this year, and planning to use the Glencoe/Corran/Lochaline route, and you have enough time between the ferries to take a detour, I recommend this one!
