Day 8

We left the hotel this morning in poor conditions and headed back on to the A78. It had rained heavily all night but we risked the weather and set off at a slow pace. Fortunately the weather cleared up when we hit the west coast. We crossed by ferry to Dunoon and set off again but this time with our skins on, it made a drastic difference to our legs and we got our pace on.

In the early afternoon we headed through the Forest of Argyle which was spectacular. We made good progress from here and finished the last 50 miles in 3 hours which included some steady climbs.

We're stopping in Inveraray tonight and Pete has treated us to a splendid meal. Dave and Pete had the venison which was awesome and I had a home made burger which was also good from The George. If you're ever here we highly recommend it.

Pete and I will be enjoying an episode of Spooks tonight and are thoroughly looking forward to it.
