An enjoyable walk on a quiet road and good tracks but muddy for much of the High Road. The village centre housed a cafe, a Pottery and a Gallery. A good end to the week's walking and sight-seeing.
On our return to the cottage we detoured to the Pass of Glencoe to take photographs of the views we saw on the previous day when the weather hadn't been good enough for photos.

By the time we return to Ardgour . . . .
