With the weather grey and cool and me suffereing with a cold there aren't any "Tales from the Road" so I'm going back to a run I did in the middle of last month. (In three parts)
The Cowal Peninsular is an area I've visited often. It's a part of the Highlands within easy reach of Glasgow. I usually ride there the "long way" via Arrocher and back on the ferry from Dunoon to Greenock.
Looking at the map recently I realised that there are some dead end roads on the peninsular and thought that exploring them might be interesting.
|Beinn an Lochain and the road called "The Rest & Be Thankful". This road has often been affected by landslides in recent years.|
|My first "road to nowhere" ends at Lochgoilhgead|
|The next one ends at Carrick Castle on Loch Goil. Built in the late 15C it seems to have been restored and is now a private house.|
|The Moses Well in Hell's Glen - water from a stone - how does that work?|
|Looking across Loch Fyne to Inveraray|
|A rare sight these days but I saw a few on the peninsular|
