Puck's Glen & Argyll

I often look towards Argyll from Greenock, but I don't often enough take the ferry across to visit this beautiful county which lies a couple of miles away on the other side of the Clyde.

Argyll marks the start of the Highlands with magnificent hills, lochs and islands.

Our first stop was the scenic Puck's Glen, a short drive from Dunoon. The path crosses streams and goes over bridges as you make your way up the side of the hill past little waterfalls which could possibly look even better during rainier seasons.

After leaving Puck's Glen we headed north past Strachur and eventually found ourselves at Old Castle Lachlan on the east shore of Loch Fyne.

Before returning for our ferry home we headed towards Tighnabruaich . By this time the weather had started to deteriorate, however we managed some photographs before heading back to Dunoon.

As we reached the top of Loch Riddon we stopped at a viewpoint to look out towards the Kyles of Bute, On a bright clear day this must surely be a spectacular view, but by the time we passed the light was poor and the visibility was greatly reduced.
