A word of warning. The walk descriptions are not detailed enough to guide you - please take a map. The batteries never run out, and you always have a signal. Oh, And don't take left or right as gospel!

The return journey to Glasgow.

No "proper" walks to report here, though we covered a few miles on foot in Glasgow.
Sunday 13 May Carradale to Glasgow.

We had to go through Campbeltown, to reach the western side of the Kintyre peninsula. The road is wider than the one on the east and the scenery included views of the islands of Islay and Jura, set against a blue sunlit sea today.

The Paps of Jura on the horizon

The beach where surfers and families spend fine days

Sea pinks (thrift) and surf

Blubells and the sea.
All this visual delight plus the sound of the cuckoo and the scent of bluebells.

We stopped for lunch at Tarbert - the point where Kintyre joins the rest of the mainland - just. The name comes from a Gaelic word meaning isthmus. Very photogenic on a fine day.

Then on to Glasgow's Sunday playground of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

and a pause for a cup of tea, before heading to Scotstoun , a suburb of Glasgow.

Looks beautiful and I love the flowers tumbling down towards the sea.

The flowers were spectacular. If you get the weather there's nowhere to beat it!
