Run Round Loch Awe

This morning I went for run round Loch Awe on the SV. I was up early (by my standards) Sunrise in Glasgow today was 4:31 am and by half seven when I got up it was like mid-day. I'm going have to get blinds or heavier curtains!

Inveraray on Loch Fyne on the way there

I found this splendid old road sign. I hadn't seen it before because I usually ride round the loch in the opposite direction.

The road is mostly single track so you can't go fast and have to keep a close look out for oncoming traffic. Luckily the road is very quiet.

Looking north across the loch to Ben Cruachan (left, I think)

I took a walk to Finchairn Castle on the banks of the loch. There's not much left of it.

Foxgloves at the castle

I stopped for small picnic with this view to the north of the loch


  1. Beautiful. The old motorway sign is really cool. I wonder if they still ban vehicles holding more than 15 persons.

    1. You'd be very unwise to take a large vehicle down that road but there are no modern signs banning then or even as a warning. The UK has many narrow and winding old roads and trucks are often stuck in them - more so now when drivers follow sat nav instructions. This one is typical


    2. Some areas have started putting up signs telling truck drivers not to follow their sat navs: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/6959057.stm
