What a great week we have had.  Saturday, Sunday and Monday were gloriously sunny and warm.  Tuesday – Thursday were dry enough to let us continue to explore.  We recommend a trip all the way down to the West Kyle of Bute including Tigh na Bruaich and Portavadie.  Go right down to Ardlamont Bay to get magnificent views of Arran.It rained all day Friday, but we had enjoyed all the best days.
