Wades Bridge.

By Tooma
Looking across a small part of Loch Fyne to the north, and Wades Bridge across the mouth of the River Aray, from the charming town of Inveraray.
The boat in the foreground is the last of the Clyde Puffer's, originally called the Eilean Eisdeal, and later renamed the Vital Spark for its famous role as the old Clyde puffer of the Para Handy Stories, which eventually became an STV series, written by local man, Neil Munro.
On the top of the hill is a viewpoint/monument called Dun Na Cuaiche; a comfortable 2 hour round walk, if you are fit, with fantastic views - which I have seen pics of. Smile

@Vince. The drive to The Fort on the A82 is a firm favourite, through the most gorgeous and varied country you could hope to see anywhere. Enjoy! Smile

Fred.
Done Glen Co a few times - in fact 2014 kayaked from Neptune’s Staircase to Inverness ...biggest fear was Lochness - when we hit it it was as flat as a mill pond 🛶👍😊

Brill, Vince. You have been a lot of places I have not, not in a kayak, anyway; too energetic, lol.
