Wow, what a turnout and only 7 days since the last one!
Usual 9.30 am meet at Milton in wonderfull sunshine. Willie gave various thoughts of where we might go (the route, not the destination), so it was quite interesting to work out where we were going, as marking already a problem at the first junction.
Willie is very familiar with this territory- so off to The Rest & down the Devil’s route to Lochgoilhead. Past the thousands of holiday makers in the numerous lodges down the dodgy single track road to Carrick Castle.
Eventually, we retraced our steps to Lochgoilhead, & had a very good lunch at The Goil Hotel. HOWEVER, their Management need to get their act together, as they didn’t honour the deal that Willie originally organised. Shame on them and a PR disaster. Perhaps a note in Trip Adviser.
However, on a more uplifting note, Grumpy’s camera didn’t half tremble when a strange young couple swayed by (see foto). I wasn’t sure whether he fancied the beautiful guy or his companion with the fab hooker heels!
So the usual schism on the routes home- the lucky ones via Dunoon, giant meringes & no rain, the unlucky ones got urinated upon & hit hellish traffic via Loch Lomond.
Terrific day Willie, 23 bodies, numbers rising- thanks from all.
Looks like 33-34 for Ireland on the 7th.
