Day-3: Ardnamurchan

Two days ago the forecast for today was sleet. As I ate breakfast this morning the weather changed from sun to rain to sun and back to rain again. As I set off it was drizzling. After a few miles I reached Loch Sunart, and the sun was shining again. It stayed that way for most of the day.

The planned highlight of the day was to reach Ardnamurchan lighthouse, at the most westerly point of mainland Britain, but the unexpected highlight was spending ten minutes watching an eagle swirling over the road near Loch Mudle.

At the end of the day, the second ferry of the trip brought me to Tobermory, ready for a day on Mull tomorrow.

'mainframe Britain'? Clearly you haven't quite decompressed enough yet...

Enjoy it, and fingers crossed the weather stays kind to you

Oops - thanks for the correction TM - now fixed. Weather today has been wonderful. Long may it last, but n time for side trip I'm afraid.
