Lochs & Mountains

According to VT Argyll is in New Zealand. My Argyll is in the West coast of Scotland. The general area is known as Argyll & Bute on the Kintyre Peninsula. The area encompasses part of the West Highland Way a favourite 3 day walk passing through some of Scotland's most scenic Mountains, glens & lochs. Loch Fyne is one of the biggest sea lochs in Scotland and is famous the world over for Loch Fyne kippers.

    Hello Joan, I hope the weather is better in Scotland than in Belgium. Here it rains a lot, that's normal but is unusually cold for the season. We started the cooling of the climate!

    Divine sunset, lovely page. I 've recently been to Oban too - this one in the south, Stewart Island NZ, about as far south as your Oban is north , I'd say. Slainte. leyle

    Excellent page! Now I know where the Only Bridge to Span the Atlantic is located (I've got your postcard with this view). I liked "Walking in the lonely Glen" tip. Thanks Joan for the virtual tour!
