Loch Katrine


The forecast showed sun symbols across the country so, envisaging a Sunday of sunny cycling, I opted for cycling shorts. We pedaled out of the car park at Loch Achray following the Dukes Pass. As we dropped into Aberfoyle there were a few tantilising sunny spells. On the road that passes Lochs Ard and Chon the sunshine gave in and was replaced by cloud. By Stronachlachar it was drizzling and once we were well on the way to the westerly point of Loch Katerine we were getting drenched.
The route round the loch was paved all the way with occasional notice boards explaining points of interest. With the wind at our backs we rolled along the undulating road. Views of Ben Lomond and the Arrachar Alps are supposed to be great but we saw sod all as the cloud dropped. The midges started biting too! Oh well, the pub at the big car park served us up fish and chips and with happy tummies we pedaled back to the car.
